Rock ‘n’ Roll!

25 May

I could write a weekly post on The Mekons and never get to all the songs that mean so much to me.  But if pressed to name the single album by them that I’d snatch if a fire broke out, I’d have to say “Rock ‘n’ Roll.”  (By the way, just to be safe, I have to un-jinx anything and say that I never, ever want a fire to break out.)  “Rock ‘n’ Roll” is so full of authentic rock ‘n’ roll attitude.

“Rock ‘n’ Roll” is their EIGHTH album, too.  Craziness!  And I think there have been 9 or 10 since then!  It’s really a musical feat for a band to keep up their power for so long.

Here’s one of of the reasons I would save “Rock ‘n’ Roll” if a fire broke out (which it won’t, ever):  “Memphis, Egypt.”  Don’t forget…rock ‘n’  roll is best played  LOUD.
