Painting: Jon Langford Pt. 2
More paintings by Jon Langford. Jon’s a Welshman, lives in Chicago, sells his work in Austin. He acquired his first bit of fame with British punk band The Mekons in the ’70’s (who still perform). He has since formed The Waco Brothers, The Pine Valley Cosmonauts and Skull Orchard (all big, big names). He continues to play music, mostly in Chicago and the UK. He also paints – a lot. His painting reflect his love for his adopted home land and it’s heros – Hank Williams, Woody Guthrie, Johnny Cash, Cowboys and lately Whales (not Wales). Check out his new book Skull Orchard Revisited – a hard bound book of his paintings, words and 18 track CD – (a reworking of a long out-of-print LP w/ new songs and arrangements). A beautiful package by a multi-talented guy.
