Excerpted from Chapter One: Childhood from Memoirs of a Geezer: Music, Mayhem, Life by Jah Wobble. No part of this excerpt may be reproduced or reprinted without permission in writing from the publisher. From the age of five I loved to play football; we would play for hours on end given a chance. Sometimes there would be forty a side, right in the middle of the estate. Looking back, it was reminiscent of those medieval games some of those country villages still play where all the geezers fight over a dead badger or a large piece of cheese or something. I still enjoy a game of football.

There isn't a dull page in this slyly entertaining memoir. Wobble is the ultimate punk and post-punk raconteur, and for those not lucky enough to spend time with the great man, this book – in which he sounds off all over again about crime, football, psychogeography, the East End and, of course, music – is a terrific substitute.

Memoirs of a Geezer helps to define the questing, sometimes troubled soul behind those legendary low frequencies. - Alan Warner Guardian There isn't a dull page in this slyly entertaining memoir .

Written in his own unmistakable voice, this is a frank and fascinating account of a geezer's life in the music business. Jah Wobble begins by offering the most authentic insider's account of the beginning of punk rock yet written, but there's much more to him than that. His is an eventful life, as the celebrated ups - PiL's The Metal Box, 90s hit Visions Of You with Sinead O'Connor - are balanced by major downs - chronic alcoholism and marital breakdown. It begins with an East End childhood in a London barely recovered from the War and ends with Wobble finally turning his back on London that no longer feels like home. Through the book Wobble tell it like he sees it: his opinions of the great and good from Malcolm Mclaren to Peter Gabriel to Brian Eno to Iain Sinclair are refreshingly disrespectful. Oh and if you ever wondered how got his name, the answer is here: his teenage pal Sid Vicious gave it to him when he drunkenly slurred Wobble's real name, John Wardle.

This book is my favorite - and I love to read all books. Many. But this one is hands down, my favorite.

He is a good and solid and FUN writer - it's so well-written. Yet, it's a quick and easy read. His accounts are sardonic but never laconic and there is a piece in there referring to his life changing moment with someone whilst working as a train conductor (post PIL and when he was supposedly "finished' with music.)

Jah Wobble is a talented musician who managed to take the time to write something that musicians, punks and those who are not a musician nor punk will love.

I am impressed!

I hope he writes more books...
lets go baby
Jah Wobble or John Wardle is oen of the most influential bassists around and probably the most influential one to emerge from the British post-punk scene. His bass defined the whole sound on Public Image Limited's first albums especially on Metal Box. He then went on to produce a series of great solo albums and did session work like no other. He can also write as we see here: he starts by recounting his childhood and then his evolution through the punk and post-punk music scene. It is abrilliant dosument from a guy who sees himself as just a geezer but who is a genuine musical talent. Indispensable.

A very cool memoir from the one and only Jah Wobble.
