Waiting to go on at the 3S Art Space. Ain’t they cute?
Actually taken during sound check, but you get the idea:
Mekons rocking the Space:
“The Mekons are a band that can make you laugh, then they can tear your head off, so at the end of the night, you’ll be a laughing corpse.
– Johnny Dowd,2015 Mekons tour
After hours party of friends:
Johnny: I’ll stand up so you can admire my shirt.
Audience: Nice shirt!
Johnny: Yeah. One of the Mekons described it as sort of like a disco pirate shirt. And that’s a place I’m comfortable being. What do you think,ladies? Not bad,eh?
Audience: General cat calls.
Johnny: (laughs) That’s the thing.. When you get old, you can say just stupid shit. It’s like being a little baby, a little baby that’s shit their pants. ‘OOOh, it’s so cute.’ Same thing when you get old. Thank God.
