Formed in November 1979 by Chris Philpott , Mick Cohen and John Wratten , and joined by Andy Orr in August 1980, Small World first hit the scene in November 1980. The band were influenced by 1960s guitar based groups like the Small Faces and post-punk new wave such as The Jam and The Clash.
Although the band attracted a diverse audience, they soon became a firm favourite on the Mod scene playing numerous headline gigs all over London and the UK, including venues such as the Marquee, Dingwalls, 100 Club, Fulham Greyhound. They had their own fan club, run by John’s sister Jacquie which had a membership of over 600. In 1982, the band released their first single “Love is Dead/Liberty” on Whaam! Records. The single quickly sold out and is now very collectable. At the end of 1982, Andy Orr was replaced on drums by Paul Guidotti , formerly of The Stripes.
Following a successful reunion gig in Brighton in 1998, the band reformed and are playing at a club or in a country near you.
