The Mekons: Living Room, London
The Legend!, New Musical Express, 6 October 1984
IS THIS the way to say goodbye? The last night at the Living Room, proprietor moving on to greater things, hopefully (water-bombs in Tottenham?!?), the pub packed and shaking to its rafters, a sweaty group up the stairs, a sweaty night, a sweating audience. After the 'post-pop psychedelic punk' of The Jesus And Mary Chain, a group the likes of which you thought was long dead, the very legendary and truly gorgeous Mekons.
