Revenge of the Mekons
“Critics’ Pick … Infectious…contagious” —The New York Times
Joe Angio’s exuberant documentary follows the unlikely career of the genre-defying collective notorious for being—as rock critic Greil Marcus notes—“the band that took punk ideology most seriously.” Born out of the 1977 British punk scene, the Mekons progressed from a group of socialist art students with no musical skills to the prolific, raucous progeny of Hank Williams, with their tales of music-industry woes. Four decades later, the Mekons still carry the punk-rock torch. (U.S., 2014, 96m, Music Box Films)
