Sympathy For The Mekons

Mixed media painting on wood. 2022. 26" x 19"

From the Mekons song Sympathy For The Mekons, on the 1987 album Honky Tonkin’ 

Here's to a band that deals in the facts of life

In their 10 short ugly years

I wish the Mekons good fortune

I sold them fame and riches

And good health

I like my friends

I feel unfit for them

It makes me sad they'll all be gone

I hold the sword, I hold the hammer

In the winter of the world

History has a stutter

It says out!
