Powered by Audioscrobbler™these two vicious bastards (black mekon and his brother black mekon) were named after the legendary black mekong, illegitimate children of prostitutes visited by missionary preachers, abandoned to fend for themselves on the banks of the mekong river.

raised in a whorehouse by drunk dockworkers in a town called christ's gasoline, they were born with only one arm between them and grew up selling sand to sailors and wrestling vermin and wives for the amusement of the locals. the rest of their upbringing is steeped in myth and told mostly in sea shanties, according to legend they escaped on a raft made of old cramps and doo rag 45s using john lee hooker and pussy galore vinyl to paddle themselves to more familiar shores.

somewhere along the line they acquired 3 more arms, a gypsy curse, drumsticks and a guitar, and ran into a fellow bluesman on the lam, stunt pussy, who agreed to help them whenever they needed to sing for their supper.
