In what may be a multimedia first, the Mekons have provided a soundtrack to a novel, that being Kathy Acker’s quasi-historical chronicle of the exploits of a band of sapphic buccaneers as they swashbuckle, and unbuckle, their way to buried booty. Acker’s sardonic narration bridges a spunky mix of chanties, odes, even a disco stomp that yields provocative, if uneven, results on Pussy, King of the Pirates.
