Album “Force 9”
New London supergroup King Mob release debut album ‘Force 9’ on 31st October and announce special London show.
KING MOB is a brand new English beat combo comprising guitar legend Chris Spedding (Roxy Music, Elton John, John Cale, Paul McCartney), Glen Matlock – bass (Sex Pistols, Iggy Pop, Faces), Martin Chambers – drums (Pretenders), Stephen W Parsons aka Snips – vocals (film composer and vocalist of legendary 70’s band Sharks) and introducing hot new guitar talent Sixteen.
The Mob, who are heavily influenced by two great composer band leaders, Duke Ellington and Jimmy Page, will release their debut album FORCE 9 through SPV/Steamhammer on 31 October 2011 on 11 track CD and 180g Vinyl LP with gatefold sleeve, 7 tracks.
The album shows a band at the height of their powers. From the sharp riffing of the first single “Selene Selene” to the truly infectious “VA VAH VOOM”, from the gentle groove of “Chapel Of Love” to the blast of album opener “Lover Of High Renown”, this is an album that draws on the collective experience of all members to create something completely unique. The band draw on the Spirit of ’69 – but not in a retrospective way – they are bringing the raw power and spirit of that golden age of music into a contemporary setting – from the songwriting, to the playing, to the sound of the records, to the live show, to the spirit of the act. The album was recorded in four days…
The group has signed an exclusive recording deal with SPV/Steamhammer for the World excluding North America and have released their first single ‘Selene Selene’, which is available to download now for free at Amazon:
