In Their Words: “Freakons is a brand new entity hewn from the dark depths of the earth by various members of the Mekons and Freakwater. Being sprung from Kentucky, Yorkshire and South Wales, where coal was once king, The Freakons share a keen micro-geological/geographical interest in songs about coal mining. ‘Black Leg Miner’ is a song from the north of England in which Sally Timms deals out some rough justice on all those scabs and strike breakers who dare to cross the picket line and betray their own. The video is a homemade, homegrown production that features the brilliant illustrations created for the Freakons album cover by Belgian artist and photographer Jo Clauwaert.” — Jon Langford, Freakons
