No band captures the DIY punk ethos better than The Mekons. As one critic wrote of the group, "Those who couldn't play tried to learn and those who could tried to forget."  The Mekons' second 7-inch stands as a lasting monument to the punk era. "Where Were You," an anthem with chiming guitars, military-style drums and snotty lyrics, may be one of the most epic songs written with just two chords. The angular spasms and up-front bass thump of "I'll Have To Dance Then (On My Own)" would become tenets for many of the post-punk bands that followed. Fast Product's slogan upon the single's initial 1978 release: "The Mekons' new awareness of sound." A double A-side, indeed.  This first-time vinyl reissue and first-time domestic release comes with the original sleeve design. Limited edition translucent yellow vinyl.
