Royal Crescent Mob
Royal Crescent Mob was a four-person punk funk/funk rock band from Columbus, Ohio, that was formed in 1985. Also known to their fans as the R.C. Mob the band members included "Brian Emch" (guitar), David Ellison (vocals, harmonica), Harold "Happy" Chichester (bass, vocals) and Carlton Smith (drums). The band released five albums of material and one ep in their nine-year career. Two of these albums were released on Sire Records, a Warner Bros. Records subsidiary. In the late 1980s and early 1990s the band gained some national exposure by opening up for other major artists such as the Replacements, the B-52's, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Smith would also record several tracks with 24-7 Spyz for their 1996 Heavy Metal Soul By The Pound album. Chichester went on to form Howlin' Maggie, worked with the Afghan Whigs, was a founding member of The Twilight Singers and is currently pursuing a solo career. Ellison has gone on to tour managing such artists as Alanis Morissette, Indigo Girls, Goo Goo Dolls, Avril Lavigne, and Panic! at the Disco.
