Jah Wobble & The Invaders Of The Heart are set to release a new album on 3oth June 2017 on 3Ms Music. The new album ‘The Usual Suspects‘ features brand new recordings of some of Jah Wobble’s finest solo, Invaders Of The Heart and Public Image Limited output from an incredible and genre-busting career that spans nearly forty years.
The Usual Suspects will be released on limited double vinyl, CD and available digitally, the twenty-three tracks were recorded over the last several months at The Smokehouse Studios in East London and include the lead single and album opener ‘Public Image ‘, re-worked from PIL’s groundbreaking debut album from 1978.
The album also includes versions of cinematic scores ‘Midnight Cowboy ‘ ‘Get Carter ‘, and Dawn Penn’s ‘You Don’t Love Me (No, No, No) ‘ which features the vocals of Aurora Dawn. And a new take of ‘Visions Of You ‘ that originally appeared on Wobble’s Invaders Of The Heart album ‘Rise Above Bedlam‘ which was nominated for a Mercury Prize for its release in 1992. Two recent live recordings of the classic rocksteady standard ‘Liquidator ‘ and ‘Poptones ‘ also appear on the album. They originally appeared on PIL’s original ‘Metal Box‘ record.
After the recent and fruitful run of live shows, Wobble and his band decided to record the collection of songs spanning the innovative bassist, percussionist and singer’s long career. Wobble went into the studio with Marc Layton-Bennett (drums, percussion & backing vocals), Martin Chung (guitars), George King (keyboards & backing vocals), Steve Rigby (beats, programming & backing vocals), Sean Corby (trumpet & Flugelhorn), Aurora Dawn (vocals) and Holly Macve (backing vocals) and set about recording the tracks below.
