Revenge of the Mekons

The unlikely career of the genre-defying musical collective known as The Mekons is profiled in this documentary--which follows a gang of socialist art students from the British punk scene of 1977 to musical infamy. Among the celebrated fans of the band interviewed here are author Jonathan Franzen (The Corrections), musician/actor Will Oldham, film director Mary Harron (I Shot Andy Warhol), critic Greil Marcus and comedian Fred Armisen ("Portlandia"). 96 minutes Unrated.
