The three are associated with the British rock band/art collective the Mekons, which has been together in one form or another since 1976.

They just released their umpteenth album, "Existentialism," the cd version of which comes with a 96-page book of writing and art. There will be a limited number of copies of "Existentialism" available at the opening.

The opening reception on October 15 will also feature a short performance by the Mini Mekons, with Langford, Bellis, and Mekons singer Sally Timms. The band will play a longer set later that evening down the street at the Continental Club.
