Hear the Echoes Podcast with Marconi Union & Jah Wobble
In a surprising collaboration, English ambient band Marconi Union teams up with dub bassist Jah Wobble, best known for his work with Public Image, Ltd. They talk about their album of deep-dub space music called Anomic.
Jah Wobble on Marconi Union: I was surprised how romantic some of the vibes were, you know, for me it’s a romantic record. It reminds me of some of the John Barry compositions, Ipcress File and stuff like that.
Jah Wobble on Tangerine Dream: I know you’re a Tangerine Dream fan, aren’t you? And I was. I discovered them because I heard them when I was on Virgin Records with PIL Tangerine Dream were the antidote for me then to the great big groove music, you know.
Jah Wobble on Classical music in Dub: I’m not joking, really. I’d love to make an orchestration with some classical music with dub.
