Today, January 20th, in 1978, the Mekons released their first single "Never Been In A Riot" on the indie Fast Records.
That first incarnation of the The Mekons consisted of Kevin Lycette and Tom Greenhalgh on guitar, Jon Langford on drums, Mary on bass and Mark White and Andrew Corrigan sharing vocals.
It was described in NME as "making the Sex Pistols look like Paper Lace.'"
So, in honor of this day in music history, we're offering up ANY Waco Brothers or Jon Langford CD on a buy one get one free basis. Order any of these fine albums, and then write in the comments section of the order form which freebie you'd like!
Act fast, this is for today only (I'll take down the offer whenever I wake up tomorrow morning, so as to give all you folks in UK and Australia who are already asleep a chance to act on this.)
And keep in mind, this is for CDS ONLY (no books, or LPs)
