about

These two vicious bastards (Black Mekon and his brother Black Mekon) were named after the legendary Black Mekong, illegitimate children of prostitutes visited by missionary preachers, abandoned to fend for themselves on the banks of The Mekong River.

Now joined by their cousin Black Mekon they deliver blistering in-the-red punk blues as a three piece. Their mobile church of jet-engine noise and pelvis-shattering drums has graced shores all over Europe, Japan, South America and the USA both headlining and at the personal request of Jon Spencer, Guitar Wolf, The Scientists, King Brothers and more.

With a bagful of albums and 7 inches under their belt including their incredibly ambitious 45 Consortium singles club (which featured splits with Bob Log II, White Mystery, Table Scraps and more) they are about to unleash their latest long player Destroy Nostalgia on PNKSLM Recordings, 10 songs lamenting/urging the death of the past.

None of what you read may be true, all of what you hear is.
 Serve it up!

about

Black Mekon Birmingham, UK

2 brothers, Black Mekon and Black Mekon. Some bull about a fake country and loud guitars or something. Not soaring or melodic. We play everywhere. Really short songs. Sexy. A bit old. Don't have a driving licence between us. Not radio friendly. Quite friendly. Hate Bios. ... more
