A founding member of Public Image Ltd - alongside ex-Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon, revered guitarist Keith Levene and drummer Jim Walker – Jah Wobble helped forge this influential group's uncompromising sound. Now the visionary bassist revisits their post-punk masterpiece.

Released in 1979, second album Metal Box featured such avant-garde cuts as Swan Lake and Poptones. Now Wobble has recreated the whole LP with dub interpretations and more expansive arrangements.
