Band membership[edit]

The Tom Greenhalgh page mentions some other band members - Kevin Lycett and Mark White - not mentioned here. Is this the same Mark White who was briefly a member of ABC (band)? --RichardVeryard 12:47, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

Don't think so. Guy Hatton 11:24, 16 July 2006 (UTC)
Briefly? According to this site he was a member for 12 years. Regardless, All Mucic Guide says it is the same guy. The Secretary of Funk 07:33, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
I think AMG is probably (not for the first time) talking out of its arse. According to the ABC article, Mark White was in the band in 1980 and they were at the height of their success around 1982. The Mekons Mark White was in the band from the first single in 1978 to "English Dancing Master" in 1983. I suspect whoever wrote the AMG entry just assumed that there was only one Mark White from northern England in the early eighties. --ajn (talk) 09:37, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
Whether he is the same Mark White or not, he still needs to be mentioned on the Mekons page, along with Kevin Lycett.--RichardVeryard 00:15, 26 August 2006 (UTC)
A lot of stuff needs to be added to this page. The Secretary of Funk 08:02, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

The photograph[edit]

Can we have a caption for the photograph that actually identifies the five members in the picture? The current caption lists nine people, with no indication of which ones are actually pictured, when the photo was taken, etc. My understanding is that not all nine were in the band at the same time, so some clarification is in order. ---TheoldanarchistComhrá 16:15, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Pop culture references[edit]

I bring this "Other Bands Referencing The Mekons" section here for discussion:

This section is, for all intents and purposes, a trivia section (and a rather paltry and pathetic one at that), and as such, violates Wikipedia policy. I think nothing is lost if it is deleted altogether. ---RepublicanJacobiteThe'FortyFive' 21:05, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:The Mekons promo bw.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:The Mekons promo bw.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.
