Jah Wobble and Band Honor William Blake 29 August 2000, British Library Auditorium
“Born in 1757 the son of an Irish hosier, Blake was an astonishingly talented man, who became a poet, painter, engraver and mystic, championing the freedom of the imagination and expressing a hatred of materialism and rationalism.
Jah Wobble’s musical CV includes playing with the likes of Peter Gabriel, Brian Eno, Björk, Dodgy and Sinead O’Connor. In a rare, one-off London show, the former member of Public Image LTD pays homage to one of England’s most famous Romantic Poets in an evening of dub-driven soundscapes and cinematic projections.”
