They were totally mental. If I recall, they seemed to only start watch Decay after Twiggy joined...
They would whack anyone including other Decay fans. If they couldn't find anyone else to fight, they would start fighting each other.

I remember them having a go at Mad at the ZigZag club - obviously brain-dead as well as Mental. Though I'm sure they were very nice individuals...

Yes I remember it like an acid enduced flashback. I have strange dreams where i think did that really happen??
Even though punk was thriving in oxford with the oranges and lemons where UKDK played twice I think. I also think there was some trouble (as there often was) with the Luton posse. The oranges shut down the last act was john otway supported by Cremation Examples. The hardcore of punks then moved to bonn square in the town centre. A lot of us were well into the band prior to O.M.M. A dozen or so of us would catch the bus to Aylesbury, Northampton, High Wycombe, London and further afield too.....up north, plymouth, futurama etc. The Oxford Mental Mob actually came about by accident in June '81 during the Apocolypse Now Tour the superb anarchic Discharge, the comic pathetic Exploited, the under rated Anti Pasti and the instantly forgettable Chron Gen.
I cannot tell you how many times I've seen uck duck or even where as some of the gigs blur into each other. But to answer annee's theory that the omm only came on the scene near the end is false. I know Mik went everywhere to see them even before twiggy joined including europe.
Can someone please do a list of all the gigs?? That way I might be able to remember what I was doing in my youth.

Mick and Geoff (the twins) are hale and hearty and spend their time split between Oxford and Spain whilst running a security firm covering doors and providing personal security to the music industry,notably Sepultura and Libertines.You're quite correct in supposing they're nice blokes,I see them in the pub reguarly and they're still UK Decay fans.

Sure do. We have been mates for nearly 30 years. We grew up in Kidlington together and started a band called Krap Not Pu (Upton Park backwards) then formed the infamous Cremation Examples.
