Jon Langford, Eric Bellis, and Kevin Lycett are associated with the British rock band/art collective the Mekons, which has been together in one form or another since 1976. Langford & Lycett were founding members. Lycett left in 1988 and has returned regularly ever since as a writer, artistic collaborator, etc. Eric Bellis joined in 1984, and he and Langford continue performing with the band to this day. They just released their umpteenth album, "Existentialism," the cd version of which comes with a 96-page book of writing and art. There are a limited number of copies of "Existentialism" available here and in the gallery.
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.
