Mockba Music was a short lived new romantic/ Synthpop band, released some singles and an album in 1984. Elegant synth pop in a stylish, very catchy way with an underrated band would deserve much more.
The original 1982 line up was: Tom Wolgers (after he left Lustans Lakejer in the fall of 1981), Mikael Ekebladh and Johan Vävare. Ekeblad departed in the same year, but Cecilia Hentz joined them. It is still not crystal clear when Heintz Liljedahl joined them, but first he guested in 1982 on their second single.
Though they got nice critics, soon disbanded in 1984.
