\Human Condition - Live at the Collegiate,1981+Live in Europe,1981,tapes,UK


Here is presented the first post-PIL ,John Wardle, aka Jah Wobble.With Animal and original PIL drummer, Jim Walker,he toured under the moniker Human Condition in the US and Europe.Those live session were released privately on tapes ,actually the only releases by Human Condition. Instrumental weird darkish experimental funk, reminding the most mainstream moments of Pop Group and Mark Stewart and the Mafia and even the funkiest moments of Can(not surprising that Jah later collaborated much times with ex Can members). Excellent improvised compositions with excellent basslines and guitarwork, by the virtuosos of the genre.

I'll add my request: PLEASE RE-UP TAPE-1!! (The WHITE one) I bought these at Rough Trade when they came out. I can't find either anymore. They've probably gone bad anyway.....
Thanks!!

Hi Anonymous
Both of these tapes were from my original rips, so as a little Xmas present here are new links for both of them.

For anyone who has already downloaded them these are better rips as the previous ones were not true stereo due to a problem with my recorder.

Thanks for the Christmas presents. I'm reading the Jah's autobiography (Memoirs of a Geezer - recommended) and had forgotten the Human Condition period. Cheers!

Fabulous stuff! I'd never even heard of Human Condition until I read Wob's autobiography, and then found the copies here. So glad I made the effort - this is Great Stuff!

And may I add another recommendation for the book 'Memoirs of a Geezer' - certainly one of my top ten reads of 2011.

Many many thanks for these - really looking forward to listening to them. Incredible that a four year old post is still live!
In thanks, go here for Jah Wobble live on Dutrch radio in 1982-83:
