The Butterfly Effect’, the new long player’s eponymous title track, examines the interdependence of all phenomena and names checks amongst others; Ginger Rogers, Fred Astaire, Bjork, Joe Strummer, Stephen Spielberg, Casanova and Ringo Star
The follow up to his recent and acclaimed ‘Dream World’ album, ‘The Butterfly Effect’ is a collection of eight brand new songs that lyrically tackle (sometimes with tongue in cheek) subjects such as the nature of mind, the post modern age and what it is to be human.
Recorded at Inner Space Studios in London, all of the songs collected here originated from poems that were written by the legendary bass player around the time of the global financial crash of ten years ago. ‘The Iron Lady Got Rust’ in particular looks back to a time that saw Margaret Thatcher impose UK banking deregulation and the free market political and economic attitudes that led to the crash and subsequently to modern day austerity and Brexit. Meanwhile, ‘I Love Your Accent’ is Wobble’s humorous look at returning to the newly gentrified area of his birthplace in London’s East End and staying a night in the area’s first five star hotel in Bethnal Green.
