The Warhol welcomes back the Mekons, the highly influential and eclectic British punk band that rock critic Lester Bangs hailed as “the most revolutionary group in the history of rock ‘n’ roll”. This genre-defying collective emerged from the 1977 punk scene, where the Mekons progressed from socialist art students with no musical skills to the prolific, raucous progeny of Hank Williams. Revenge of the Mekons, a documentary about the band released nationwide in 2015 on Music Box Films.
