It is full of the self-deprecating bon mots you have grown to need over the years...
Hell, even the title of the article "No One Buys Our Records" ought to be a clue.
A couple of our favorite gems:
"I’ve got teenage kids, and when I talk to them and their friends about issues that concern me they think I’m a paranoid loon. "
"We should have split up for 10 years and gotten back together. Maybe we can still do that."
ST: "Except we’d be dead before there’s any interest in us reforming."
"I do lots of things, but there’s nothing I like as much as The Mekons."
Today's the release day for the Mekons new album Ancient & Modern.
Everyone who pre-ordered the album was entered in a random drawing for all sorts of odd Mekons ephemera. We've put all the orders in our big DRUM OF FUN and pulled out our winners. And they are...
Carl Johnson -- Los Angeles
Ram Zimmerman -- Austin TX
Robert Roberson --- Richview IL
Chris Ruhlen --- Kensington MD
Tim Kelleher -- Wheaton IL
Stan Carpenter --- Shreveport LA
Congratulations and thanks for the support.
