Again, you could have another person post a favorite mix, and it would make it seem like they were a bunch of punk rockers. I actually revisited The Curse - The Mekons - The Curse Of The Mekons of the earlier punk stuff and might end up pulling a track or two Where is @Shadowtodd - Dumphop - Death Grits Hole? About half of your selections were considered. Dropped by a Major Label. But the curse persisted. Eternal Upstarts. Returning to the sphere of independent labels also returns the Mekons to self-determination, and it has brought them back for a short United States tour. As soon as we get home, we're going to start recording, and eventually we hope to get the rights back to 'The Curse. Commercial success has never been high on the Mekons' agenda; the band's members seem willing to settle for subsistence through rock. Such is the curse of the Mekons. Its undoubtedly the most accessible and upbeat at least until you start listening to the lyrics album the band ever made. They could have scooped Nevermind by two years. All across Alternative Nation Gen-X kids would have been hopping around chirping the chorus of Only Darkness Has the Power,o the screech of Susie Honeymans fiddle piercing the airwaves before we ever heard Kurt Cobains feedbacking guitar. Yep, the money would have rolled in and the self- disgust level of Greenhalgh, Langford and Timms would have reached dangerous highs. Of course the album was the most delicious indictments of the music industry since Elvis Costellos Radio Radio. The The Curse - The Mekons - The Curse Of The Mekons was stuffed full of lyrics attacking The Biz. In the next cut Club Mekon Timms directly compares rock n roll with prostitution. Of course, shes celebrating both. By Amnesiao the Mekons have put the birth of rock n roll not in some happy archetypal Mississippi roadhouse or New Orleans whorehouse but aboard a damned slave ship. The fact that something as brilliant as The Curse of The Mekons couldnt find a home on an American label for 10 years only adds to the loathing of the industry felt by anyone with a heart or brain. Slightly more relaxed and definitely less bombastic than Rock n Roll, Curse contains some essential Mekon material, such as Langfords commentary on The Hawking Brothers - Australian Heritage fall of communism, Funeral,o in which he spits at those dancing on the grave of socialism. How can something really be dead when it hasnt really happened? Theres a crazed march Authorityo and yes, those are bagpipes you hear in the mix and Brutalo a musical history of the drug war, going back to the Opium War in China, sung by Timms over a mutated reggae soundscape. Sally shines even more than usual on this album with the song Secretso featuring a spoken segment in GermanWaltzo one of the prettiest melodies the Mekons ever recorded, featuring a sweet acoustic guitar and an understated cover of John Andersons country hit Wild and Blue. If youve ever been tempted to join the cult of the Mekons, these two CDs would be as good a place as The Curse - The Mekons - The Curse Of The Mekons to start. My advice is to destroy your safe and happy lives before it is too late. Such is the blessing of the Mekons. Fun 90Christgau's linernotes. I'm tempted to call the Mekons cynical, but that's not quite true; cynicism implies a certain amount of resignation, and the Mekons are anything but Elke Sommer - Ich Liebe Dich

    It's amazing that as down and out as the Mekons were at this point, they could manage to summon up the emotional wherewithal to make a record as excellent as Curse, but they classical.agakelvmarijurusandromadar.infoinfo title most definitely reflects the band's mindset at this time, but this is not the music of self-pity and despair ("We're right in all we distrust," yelps Greenhaigh on the title track); in fact, if it weren't for 9/

    Nov 13,  · However, on "The Curse of the Mekons" and "Rock and Roll", the band came up with its most successful blends to date, mixing rock and roll sensibility with a variety of traditional influences. But it's not the blurring of genre lines which makes these two albums such lasting treasures, it's the totality of the performance. For once (or twice 5/5(2).

    Oct 03,  · The last really good Mekons CD, and their last full indulging of cowboy reveries; not necessarily in sound but in rhythm and structure. Some of the structures are too stratified (the almost martial "Authority" - of course, that's the intent, you say, look at the title - okay, point well taken), it's not as loose as the Mekes should be/5(5).
