Jah Wobble’s Deep Space – 07/04/99 – Astoria 2

I like PIL and I like Jah Wobble’s dubby stuff, but this was far too ‘World Music’ for my liking. He and his cohorts had assembled a collection of odd wind instruments ranging from those kiddies’ plastic things with a keyboard on the front and a mouthpiece you blow into, to bizarre cod-medieval sackbuts and things like that, all of which sounded the same, namely kazoo-like. And for a man responsible for some of the dubbingest basslines in history (think The Orb’s Perpetual Dawn for starters) he hardly played any killer bass. Definitely shortchanged there.
