Members of Swedish House Mafia’s (SHM) crew became Mo Bros this month, sprouting an array of moustaches to raise money for the global Movember men’s health awareness initiative. The eight-strong SHM Movember team were inspired by tour manager Michael ‘Curly’ Jobson, whose father in law was diagnosed with prostate cancer – the most common cancer in men in the UK. Joining Curly as Mo Bros were lighting designer Ian Tomlinson, FOH engineer Wayne ‘Rabbit’ Sargent, monitor engineer Carlos Herreros, production manager Mark Reuben, advance production manager Robin Scott, stage manager Rob Lister and VJ Sam Hodgkiss. For Rabbit, known and loved for his expansive sense of humour, it’s actually the second attempt at au natural facial enhancement – but the first for a good cause. The previous one spectacularly failed to impress an ex-girlfriend, but he’s now married and hoping that his partner won’t be filing for divorce. Tomlinson, who admitted to ‘chickening out’ last year, commented “It’s a great charity…and I think Curly likes to be surrounded by men with moustaches Herreros has had a real laugh taking part but reckons that he will win the ‘worst tache’ prize and has no intention of keeping it beyond 30 November, after which he won’t have to endure band members calling him “El Zorro” any more. Hodgkiss concluded “When Curly raised the idea, we could not say no to creepy faces and crew bonding!” www.onelasttour.com
