KING MOB ECHO
Number 1. London, Pymalion Press Ltd., April 1968. Folio; 10 pages, printed paper covers, illustrated.
King Mob was a radical marxist group which contributed to the social revolutions of the sixties, close to the Situationists. The name was borrowed from the slogan 'His Majesty King Mob' which rioters scribbled on the walls of Newgate prison after gutting the building in the book by Chr.Hibbert (1958) on the Gordon Riots of June 1780. The group distributed their political ideas and appreciation of pop culture through various posters and especially through this publication, celebrating killers like Jack the Ripper, Mary Bell and John Christie.
