King Mob Echo: From Gordon Riots to Situationists & Sex Pistols

'Part of the genesis of punk goes back to the English section of the Situationists and the subsequent King Mob - a loose affiliation (hardly a group) of disparate though confused revolutionary individuals in England in 1968. King Mob lauded and practiced active nihilism...' Dave and Stuart Wise, The End of Music

'Behind the slogan of 'No Popery' and other outward forms of religious fanaticism there lay a deeper social purpose: a groping desire to settle accounts with the rich, if only for a day, and the achieve some rough kind of social justice.' George Rude, The Gordon Riots
