By 1984, both Levene and Wobble had departed, and the group came under the direction of Lydon, who released a number of subsequent albums, including This Is What You Want... This Is What You Get (1984). [6] After a late 1990s hiatus, Lydon reformed the group and has released several further albums, most recently What the World Needs Now... (2015).

In his early life and career, by his own admission, [6] Wardle was given to occasional bouts of aggression, exacerbated by heavy drinking and drug use. As a result, he ended up living in a squat with John Gray in West London , whilst Lydon and Vicious formed The Sex Pistols . With admittedly large "builders hands", he had experimented with the guitar, but found playing bass a more connected and whole body experience, influenced in part by admiring Bob Marley ’s and The Wailers bassist Aston "Family Man" Barrett on stage in 1975. [7] Wardle was as critical of his friend Vicious's bass playing as John Lydon, [7] and had hence played in experimentation sessions with Lydon. After burning all the possessions of his squat-mates, they left him alone there with a mattress, a headboard and his Music Man -copy bass. [7]
