Revenge of the Mekons

Rated NR 95 min. 2014

The Mekons have been called political provocateurs, social agitators, Punk's reigning contrarians, and more. The film chronicles the unlikely story of a group of radical British art students who formed in the first blast of punk rock in 1977. Against all odds - and despite a career consigned to the margins - the Mekons continue to tour and make adventurous and challenging albums, despite the fact that its eight members are separated by thousands of miles across two continents. Adored with cult-like devotion by fans and critics alike, the Mekons have redefined themselves and their music repeatedly over the years while staying true to the punk ethos. But they are more than just a band. They're also an art collective whose members make art individually, collectively and in collaboration with other avant-garde artists.
