Post-punk iconoclasts The Mekons join us to perform live in session on Resonance FM this Saturday lunchtime.
With a new album (Ancient & Modern) set for imminent release plus a documentary in the pipeline by filmmaker Jon Angio (Revenge of The Mekons), the collective of artists and musicians that comprise The Mekons are thankfully showing no signs of shipping back to Venus. In 1978 The Mekons’ debut single ‘Never Been In A Riot’, was denied distribution by Rough Trade after they deemed it too lo-fi and scratchy for the common or garden post-punk punter, yet despite this ignominious beginning the group are currently in their 5th decade and still going strong. Tune in to hear their distinct brand of barnstorming, politically charged, country-punk music.
The deXter Bentley Hello GoodBye Show broadcasts live between noon and 1.30pm on 104.4 FM in Central London and on-line via: www.resonancefm.com
