Story of She Mob
Lisa and Diane
Wallis —the early years at the Sound of Music in San Francisco.
Diane has since left the group.
Named after an obscure
1968 exploitation flick, She Mob consists of Sue Hutchinson and
Alan Korn trading places on bass and guitar, while Lisa McElroy and
Suki O'Kane trade on drums and keyboards. Suki is also the group's resident
historical photo archive of McAllister Street.
Our friend Neo describes
She Mob as "Three cool, smart, over-30 women and their faithful male
companion who play this lovely, shambling, rattly music full of anger,
whimsy and poignancy with an unbelievably prolific repertoire of incredibly
catchy garage-pop songs." Thanks Neo.
Alan doesn't drum
but he could probably pick it up in a few hours.
first CD, Cancel the Wedding is available on our own label,
Spinster Playtime and managed to garner many fine reviews
from officially published writer-types. Our latest release, Turn
to Chocolate continues the fine tradition of musical good times.
Give one or both a listen on our MP3 page. They
were masterfully mixed and mastered by Myles Boisen (Splatter Trio and
countless amazing improv bands).
our CDs, She Mob's live shows are filled with moments of spontaneous whimsy,
a charming lack of pretense and at times, outright confusion. Theme nights
have included the three incarnations of Courtney Love, escaped lunatic,
and bad acid, depending on the mood and costume budget.
