He wrote a song about them, his band went on tour with them, so it was only fitting that this week’s guest Tim Quirk (Too Much Joy) brought us “The Mekons Rock ‘n’ Roll” by University of Leeds art students-cum-enduring post-punk stalwarts the Mekons. This deeply meta record both celebrates and excoriates the power of rock music, and their schizophrenic blend of joyful noise and alt-country tunefulness is loud, fast and perfectly imperfect. Just as great rock ‘n’ roll should be! Support Rob and Barry on their crusade to give voice to every opinion they've ever had at Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/join/TRGMH/
