Mekons: everything old is new again

The Mekons have seen two of their classic albums reissued in the past few months: Honky Tonkin' and So Good It Hurts, two records cited as touchstones in the birth of today's alt-country scene. On that note, you can catch Sally Timms and Jon Langford in various states of performance at this year's SXSW, it conference.
