The Mekons
The Edge Of The World

The Edge of the World was the 5th album by British/American punks The Mekons. By this time in their career, 1985, they had incorporated country rock into their sound which was quite a shift for them artistically. Nevertheless, the music was good, the lyrics about eating cat food and being stuck talking to drunks were typically imaginative and odd.

The Mekons
Fear And Whiskey

Fear and Whiskey was the fourth album by The Mekons. This album saw the British/American punk band take a sharp stylistic turn by morphing into a country rock band. It is thought that this could have been where the alt. country/american genre began. It is widely regarded as their best album. An album of its time, which is also timeless.

The Mekons
The Quality Of Mercy Is Not Strnen

Leeds art punk band, The Mekons, released their debut album, The Quality Of Mercy is not Strnen, in 1979. It was originally released on Virgin, but despite the major label backing, they had to borrow the gear needed to record it from fellow Leeds band, Gang Of Four. When you get this album home and look at the back cover, that is, in fact, a picture of Gang Of Four and not The Mekons. Those crazy cats!

Mekons
Deserted

Look everyone, it's Mekons, but now with brand new material! The inventive Leeds punk / post-punk group went to Joshua Tree in California in order to record Deserted (it's a desert, geddit?), but managed to avoid absorbing too much of the ghost of U2 into their sound. It’s brand new Mekons guys, what more do I need to say? On Glitterbeat.

The Mekons 77
It Is Twice Blessed

Leeds legends The Mekons get the band back together, in a manner of speaking. While The Mekons has run in various incarnations since forming in the late 70s, new LP It Is Twice Blessed marks the first time that the original lineup has recorded an album together for almost forty years. It’s a classic serving from a group which spawned from the same scene as Gang Of Four and Delta 5 - spiky post-punk, rendered with shades of dub and country, that skewers the Current State Of Affairs with righteous fury.

The Mekons
Mekonville

Forty years of The Mekons this year! Naturally we celebrate with the release of some music, in the form of two recordings from the recent Mekonville Festival. Interestingly, one recording is by the current line-up of the band, and the other is from the original 1977 line-up, re-assembled for the purpose. Two-track 12” on Slow Product.

Mekons
Existentialism

Taking a similar tact as Jack White, Mekons wanting to create perform and record all at the same time. Working more as a document or even a piece of performance art Existentialism was created live in front of a small audience and recorded with a single microphone in the middle of the room. Originally only available through the band, this is the first time it has been officially released.

The Mekons & Robbie Fulks
Jura

The Mekons decamped to the distant Scottish isle of Jura with international musical traveller Robbie Fulks to record this album. While they may be best known for their original punk action, they’ve moved into country areas since, and Jura proves the perfect opportunity to go fully island-folk. Ancient sounding tunes, on the Bloodshot label.
