May sees the release of Jon Langford’sbook, Skull Orchard Revisited. More known for his music, this book of Langford’s art, layered text & images, also includes a copy of a rare album, ‘Skull Orchard’ originally released in 2005 by a label that quickly went bust. As well as a collection of his art and lyrics, Revisited includes his first published fiction, a dystopian fable about a dolphin and a whale.For most, Jon Langford is most noted for being part of The Mekons, a legendary post-punk-folk-country band with a devoted, cult-ish following, and later with the Waco Brothers. But as well as being founder of The Mekons, Langford has a growing reputation as an artist.
