Mekons: Revenge of the Mekons DVD
Political provocateurs. Social agitators. Punk's reigning contrarians. The Mekons have been called all this and more. REVENGE OF THE MEKONS tracks the unlikely musical career of one of the longest-running and most prolific of the first-wave British punk bands, charting their progression from socialist art students with no musical skills through their reinvention as the rabble-rousing progeny of Hank Williams. Featuring performances by the band as well as interviews with celebrity fans including Jonathan Franzen, Fred Armisen, Will Oldham, and Mary Harron, Joe Angio's lively documentary reveals how, four decades into a still-evolving career, the Mekons continue to make original, genre-defying music while staying true to the punk ethos.
