The accompanying volume, sub-titled ‘From Gordon Riots to Situationists to Sex Pistols’, the intrepid Tom Vague plunders the archives of history, exploring the Gordon Riots (they won't teach you this in skool, kids!), then fast-forwarding rough-shod through the centuries to almost present-day to draw parallels.

The Gordon Riots were initially an anti-Catholic uprising, as the ‘Mob’ laid siege to Parliament. This soon morphed into “attack the rich”; it was a genuine manifestation of Anarchy In The UK.

The opening scenes of the film, ‘The Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle’, echo these important events, as the ‘Mob’ lynch the Cess Pit Holes.

King Mob of the 1960s took their name from the original Gordon Rioters, who scrawled “His Majesty King Mob” on the gates of Newgate prison, before releasing the prisoners (á la the storming of the Bastille).

Tom Vague's relentless journey weaves the various strands into this witty presentation of some secret history.

History; but history's the new rock'n'roll, with Tom Vague as the new John Lenin!
