The Mob are an English anarcho-punk band, formed in Yeovil, Somerset in the late 1970s.

Background[edit]

The band's initial line up consisted of Mark Wilson (vocals, guitar), Curtis You'e (bass guitar) and Graham Fallows (drums). Later drummers included Adie Tompkins, Tim Hutton and Josef Porta. The band broke up in 1983 but reformed in 2011 and played a number of concerts with the original members. The first was on April 8, 2011 at The Fleece in Bristol and later in the year, The Levellers Beautiful Days Festival in Devon on August 20.[1] North American shows followed in October 2012.[2] and various European gigs in 2012/13. Their first new release in almost 30 years was the 7" single Rise Up!/There's Nothing You've Got I Want in August 2013.[3]


All the Madmen Records[edit]

All the Madmen Records is a record label started by The Mob in Yeovil before Mark Wilson and Curtis You'e relocated to London in the early 1980s. Profits from the band's Let The Tribe Increase LP were ploughed back into the label, which was then co-organised by members of the collective which published the Kill Your Pet Puppy zine.
