From the heart England, The Mobbs play garage punk with an infectious ferocity second to none. With an arsenal of influences from the mono-tones of 1960s British Beat to a full on undertone of funked up rhythm & blues, The Mobbs play a Wilko Johnson infused Billy Childish explosion, with a rocket full of ideas inspired by contemporary cult English bands such as The Masonics, and a massive dose of live energy derived from the likes of King Salami & The Cumberland 3!
In the past few years The Mobbs have released four albums and two 7"s and have been played on many radio stations including BBC 6Music, XFM and Absolute Radio. The Mobbs are currently promoting their latest album "Garage Punk For Boys" across the UK and Europe.
This is a sound only Brits could make. And they make it so well.
You can probably guess from the album title that the band have a rather splendid Britishness about them, not only in their lyrical content but with an image to match, with their proud, but slightly dubious, boast that they have been responsible for a "250% increase in sales of cravats and moustache combs".

...a nonstop party comprised of sonic blasts and rave ups, with an occasional dash of Monty Pythonesque humor adding to the fun.

Thunderous debut single on bb rex from a rocket fuelled three piece called the mobbs featuring the two tracks 'jolly good!' and 'muck 'n' bullets'. it's a kinda' garagey, buff medways, 60's roller that gets straight to the point. do not miss.

You can fit a lot into just 81 seconds. Just ask Northampton trio The Mobbs. On their debut single, "Jolly Good", the group manage to fit in a massive Clash-esque punk riff, three verses and a guitar solo in their own idiosyncratic style. It also marks the first time I've heard the word 'nonchalant' used successfully in a rock song.

Bursting with retro energy, Northampton trio The Mobbs sum up everything we love about proper British bands.
