Jon Langford is a living legend. His work with the Mekons over the past four-and-a-half decades is not only staggering in its longevity but also in its consistent quality. Aside from his solo career, the Britain-born, Chicago-based Langford fronts Skull Orchard and the Waco Brothers, whose latest is Resist! (a vinyl-only LP on Bloodshot that compiles their political anthems from the past 25 years). Langford also has a series of singles coming out this year on the Tiny Global label.
