"Jon Langford was born in Newport, Wales, and studied Fine Art at Leeds University. He is a founding member of legendary punk band the Mekons, art- metal power trio the Three Johns, and militant hard- country rockers the Waco Brothers. Since moving to Chicago in 1992 he has exhibited his paintings and etchings extensively, designed covers for albums by Hank Williams and Buddy Guy, toured his spoken- word multimedia performance, The Executioner’s Last Songs, and in 2005 published a collection of his paintings, writings, and music under the title Nashville Radio. Jon Langford is best known for the music he creates with the Mekons and the Waco Brothers, but he’s also gained increasing acclaim for his visual art over the past decade. Nashville Radio, his first book + CD of paintings, writing, and music (Verse Chorus Press, 2005) was a sprawling, jam-packed collection full of punk energy. "
