The Usual Sus­pects 3MS MU­SiC 7/10 Dub doyen’s stroll down mem­ory lane The Usual Sus­pects finds bass colossus Jah Wob­ble and his band re-record­ing in a leisurely fash­ion some of the best-known tracks from his four decades in show­biz, a pe­riod strad­dling his time in PiL (“Pub­lic Im­age” opens this 2CD set) and solo suc­cess in the early 1990s (a serene “Vi­sions Of You” ap­pears). Wob­ble has long been the great in­ter­preter, and once you set­tle into the In­vaders’ steady cruise ship vibe, the flow of hits and cov­ers – in­clud­ing the Mid­night Cow­boy and Get Carter themes and Dawn Penn’s “No No No” – be­comes ir­re­sistible. Th­ese smooth edges still cut deep.
