Jah Wobble - Umbra Sumus  Print E-mail
Music Disc Reviews Audio CD

Umbra Sumus,
30 Hertz Records
| Performance 7 | Sound 8 |

Why do you know the name Jah Wobble? Well, if you were punk when punk wasn't $2.99 at the local Pierce-O-Rama, you may recognize Wobble as the former bassist for Public Image Ltd. who was actually only given a bass guitar just months before joining PIL. Unfortunately, many lost contact with Wobble after he left PIL in 1980 and while they went on to record some of their most acclaimed work, Wobble seemingly did just as his name would imply, virtually falling off the map at times.

The good news here, for those of you longing for that ever-elusive new Jah Wobble--and we know you're out there--is that Jah has returned, and that this album is really pretty good. Call it 'music for your third-eye' or what have you, but this album is an instrumental electronica that may have been forced to clear Customs somewhere near Istanbul. Nothing like what you might expect from a man who got his bass guitar from Sid Vicious. Produced by Wobble himself for his own 30 Hertz Records this album is recorded well and mastered carefully for a very intriguing, involving listen.
