King Mob, the belting new English beat combo, whose debut album ‘Force 9’ was highly acclaimed on release in November 2011, have released new single ‘I Was There (Olympix Edit)’ on SPV Records, available now in digital format on iTunes and Amazon.
‘I was There’, an irresistible anthem with a swamp–blues feel and a seductive see-saw guitar line, (taken from ‘Force 9’), has been edited and condensed into a punchy, radio-friendly 3 and a half minutes single in celebration of our Summer Of Sport. Sport is a burning thing and King Mob are all about sweat, energy and intense performance under pressure. ‘I Was There’ is a celebration of the life wave set to a driving beat and is already proving a powerful emotional soundtrack for the summer of Sport on key Sporting media outlets BBC Sport, SkySPORTS, ESPN and talkSPORT to name but a few, as well as on rotation at Olympic Stadia and sports venues nationwide.
King Mob, who draw on the ‘Spirit of ‘69’ – but not in a retrospective way – bring the raw power and spirit of that golden age of music into a contemporary setting to create thrilling, visceral, timeless rock’n’roll music. King Mob, comprised of guitar legend Chris Spedding (Roxy Music, Elton John, John Cale, Paul McCartney), Martin Chambers – drums (Pretenders), Stephen W Parsons aka Snips – vocals (film composer and vocalist of cult 70’s band Sharks), hot new guitar talent Sixteen, plus new exciting young Japanese bass player Toshi Ogawa.
