‘The Mekons are the most revolutionary group in the history of rock ’n’ roll.’ Lester Bangs. The Mekons were one of the great bands to come out of Leeds and one of the most consistently innovative and provocative graduates of the British punk movement. Against all odds—and despite a career consigned to the margins—the Mekons continue to tour and make adventurous and challenging albums, despite its member’s separation across two continents. A rich and illuminating account of a fascinating, criminally under-recognized band, Revenge of the Mekons is a lively, inspiring and entertaining film.
