The Mongrel Mob aka Mongrel Mob Hastings, Mongrel Mob Porirua and Mongrel Mob Notorious is a New Zealand gang, originally formed in Hawke’s Bay in the 1960s and early 1970s. The gang offers a surrogate family for young men, most of whom are often alienated from their family via joining.
They like long walks on the beach, reading a book, drug dealing, assault, murder and theft. Their gang rivals are the Black Power and the Road Knights. The gang’s colors are predominantly red and black. The patches usually feature a swastika and a British Bulldog wearing a German Stahlhelm. Tricky, the London musician, is also part of the Mongrel Mob and is trying to start a UK version of back here.
