Jah Wobble’s Invaders Of The Heart announce first show in 20 yrs

Jah WobbleUK music legend Jah Wobble is celebrating 36 years in music this year with the release of a career-spanning 6-CD box set, ReDux, and a brand new single, “Let’s Go Psycho.”

To launch the release, Wobble is reforming his group, Invaders Of The Heart, for a one-off show at London’s Under The Bridge. The show will take place on the 10th of October.

Wobble rose to prominence as the original bass player in John Lydon’s post-Sex Pistols band, Public Image Ltd. His distinctive sound and style of playing soon garnered him notoriety and led The Guardian to describe him as “a true maverick.”

Invaders Of The Heart released their debut album in 1990, following it up with the Mercury Music Prize-nominated sophomore LP, “Rising Above Bedlam”, in 1991. The band stopped playing live in 1994, even though more studio albums followed.

The 6-CD ReDux set will be released later in the year, with Disc 1 also being released as a stand-alone Greatest Hits package. Disc 6 of ReDux comprises a brand new Jah Wobble album, and also features some exclusive covers.

Invaders Of The Heart will play Under The Bridge, Fulham Road, London, SW6 1HS on the 10th Of October 2014. You can buy tickets from the box office here.

David Crosby talks CSNY 1974 box set

CSNY 1974 Box Set

Music legend David Crosby has been discussing the forthcoming Crosby Stills Nashy & Young CSNY 1974 box set.

In an interview with Radio.com, Crosby said that one of his favourites of the new set is a rare recording of a song by Neil Young that has never been commercially released.

“Pushed It Over The End” was described by Crosby as “one of of the most intense pieces of music I’ve ever heard in my life. It might be the single greatest Neil Young live [performance] ever. I never heard anybody be that intense on a record. Ever. Anybody. Anybody. Ever.”

Graham Nash has previously discussed the problems he experienced working on the box set, citing “other people’s agendas and trying to please four people at the same time”.

CSNY 1974 is currently scheduled for release on the 8th of July this year.
