What people are saying about Mekons

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gig at an iconic venue. Not been to the 100 club for 39 years, some different beers on sale but otherwise not changed! Fantastic to see The Mekons deliver a great set with some classics and some from there extensive back catalogue. A great relaxed atmosphere and a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rejoice music lovers The Mekons are back with their first full album in eight years. Four decades have honed their shambolic splendor into a thing of precious beauty and this gig launched an album recorded in five days at bassist Dave Trumfio’s studio just outside Joshua Tree National Park. It is a classic of creative chaos. There is a sense of reflection, aging even but also hope and freedom amidst expansive panoramas of space and sound. The surging opener at the gig was Lawrence of California which has spectacular imagery “red thorns burst through fossil bark” and claws into your consciousness with its “I will be the King” refrain. The desert theme extends throughout the set and the elliptic Harar 1883 covers Rimbaud’s time in Ethiopia using parched dry couplets “Back home they think I’ve disappeared, yes its true that I deserted”. Susie Honeyman’s achingly beautiful violin and Sally Timms pure and clear vocal are joys to hear. There is a childish wonder evident On How Many Stars as the beauty of a night sky, seen around a drunken campfire scene comes sensationally to life. Rico Bell’s accordion layers drummer Steve Goulding and Trumfio’s bass rhythms to stunning effect. Lou Edmonds, Tom Greenhalgh and Jon Langford on guitars and vocals bounce the surreal and bizarre around with the joy of teenagers. Imaginations run riot as Bowie tribute Weimer Vending Machine recalls Iggy Pop in Berlin wanting a sandwich and seeing a sign, puts his money in and receives a bag of sand. It is a typical Mekon springboard into classic long term favourite and this sold out packed gig was brilliant and the new songs some of the best they have ever produced. This is eight hugely talented musicians, singers, writers and comrades combining in a way no other band can and long may they continue. Awesome night.
