The Mob

The Mob were NYHC from the early days. They originally released two 7"s, 1982's Upset The System and 1983's Step Forward, as well as a full length LP entitled We Come To Crush. It's all good stuff, but unfortunately it's not very easy to track down. They also have some compilation tracks but I think they were available on the previous offerings. I bought the first 2 45s out of a bargain bin for fifty cents apiece @1985, and this would be a great collector's story if I left out the part about selling them a year later for a couple of bucks. More recently available is The Truth Over The Airwaves, a CD with 20 tracks recorded live at a radio station. I haven't heard this record, in fact I just found out about it, so I can't tell you much about it- I assume it rocks. Step Forward is a more diverse early recording, but i've always liked the staccato hardcore of Upset The System-

tracks removed to free up space. check out www.7inchpunk.com for this 7".

I love this 7". I have a CD from Another Planet records (they also did Leeway and CroMag comps) which has Upset the System and We Come to Crush but leaves out Step Forward. Would love to hear that.

BTW - the Mob appears on a comp LP called "Big Apple - Rotten to the Core" that is simply amazing, the best HC comp ever along with This is Boston Not LA.

Didn't know about the CD, should I assume it's out of print? Wonder why they didn't put Step Forward on it (it's only 3 songs). Anyone know if the Rotten to the Core tracks are only specific to the comp?
