  • The man born John Wardle began his musical journey when he met John Lydon and Sid Vicious in 1973. It was Vicious who not only nicknamed John ‘Jah Wobble’ after a drunken binge but also loaned him his first bass guitar. Lydon asked JW to join Public Image Limited (aka PiL) in spring 1978. Wardle’s distinctive ‘low end’ bass became the backbone of PiL’s pioneering sound. After its follow-up, the exploratory yet sinister soundscapes of ‘Metal Box’, Wardle became disillusioned by politics within the band and their reluctance to play live. He eventually split from PiL in mid-1980 and embarked on a prolific solo career.
    Jah Wobble’s Invaders of the Heart released their debut album in 1990 and received a Mercury Music Prize nomination in 1991 for the ‘Rising above bedlam’ album. After the acclaimed ‘Take me to God’ album in 1994 the band split and Jah Wobble launched his own 30 Hertz record label which has subsequently released around 30 albums. His new album ‘The Usual Suspects’ was described as ‘a ravishing suite of moods that gather at the intersection of dub, funk, prog jazz and world music’ by Uncut magazine.

Saturday 4th November - Social Repose

Aiken Promotions present SOCIAL REPOSE + special guests One-Eyed Doll
“Social Repose is all my creative energy combined and organized under one name. It’s the sum of my creative process. Everything from my stage attire to the lyrics I write reflect my quest for individuality. My message has always been to simply think and express on your own terms. Don’t let narrow minded people tell you it’s unacceptable to be unique.” ~ Richie Giese/ Social Repose

  • Hailing from Washington, D.C., Social Repose found it’s modest beginnings in the bedroom of singer, songwriter, producer and personality Richie Giese in late 2011. Social Repose, stylistically dubbed S/R, began as a synth-pop act used as a creative outlet that blended experiences, personal struggles, and fictional character storylines into one creative unique experience that fans nation-wide have come to embrace and receive. For most, Social Repose is more than just another creative display of well thought-out lyrics strung together by catchy melodies. More than anything it’s become a life style, a personal expression, and a reality.

    Much of Richie’s success could be attributed to his strong commitment to music and social media, but also the personality attached to the character. Outside S/R’s rapidly growing Facebook popularity, Richie’s YouTube career has also seen a significant influx as fan support over the past months has boomed. His personal YouTube channel now hosts nearly one million subscribers who flock to watch his content on a daily basis. His YouTube channel has generated over 140 million views and as seen music sales and streaming increase in nearly every month since his debut EP, ‘Yalta,’ was released in late 2015, generating multiple million stream singles and tens of thousands of units being sold.

    Social Repose will be looking to continue building on his success as he continues to be a model for musicians everywhere, showing that hard work, a strong will to succeed, and dedication to your craft can make a global impression.

    Tickets priced €15 go on sale this Wednesday 16th August at 9am through www.ticketmaster.ie & usual outlets nationwide.

  • Bedouine, a gallicized riff on bedouin, the nomad, the wanderer. Anyone can assume such a name, but Azniv Korkejian has an experience of what it means, the type of ground it covers. Born in Aleppo, to Syrian/Armenian parents, Korkejian spent her childhood in Saudi Arabia, moving to America when her family won a Green Card lottery. They settled in Boston, then Houston, but she split for L.A. as soon as she could, ultimately settling there working as a sound editor. She never set out to be a singer in L.A., taking a zen approach to that part of her life, thinking that if it happens, it happens. One day she walked into the studio of bass player / producer Gus Seyffert (Beck, Norah Jones, The Black Keys) to inquire about portable reel-to-reel tape machines and ended up cutting “Solitary Daughter’’ in a first take. So they began another kind of journey.

    Bedouine has a sound. Sixties folk meets seventies country-funk with a glimmer of bossa nova cool. With contributions from a remarkable cast of players like guitarist Smokey Hormel (Tom Waits, Joe Strummer, Johnny Cash), Seyffert and Korkejian brought a selection of ten songs to Richmond, Virginia. She specifically sought out Spacebomb, approaching Matthew E. White after a show in L.A. He remembers listening to the song she sent over and over, on and off the road, “‘One of These Days’ became our alarm when we woke up for almost all of that tour.” Anticipating this future collaboration, the tracks were created with breathing room for the Spacebomb touch and Trey Pollard’s sinuous symphonic arrangements.

    Bedouine represents minimalism motivated by travel, paring down and paring down until only the essential remains. Her music establishes a sustained and complete mood, reflecting on the unending reverberations of displacement, unafraid to take pleasure along the way. At the end of “Summer Cold” Korkejian composed an interstitial piece to recreate the sounds of her grandmother’s street in Aleppo. Partly due to America’s role in destabilizing Syria, this sonic memory is the only way to return to her birthplace.
