The Next Round - Episode 14: Jon Langford

While Jon Langford may not be a household name, he's been making critically acclaimed albums for over 35 years.  He's a founding member of UK punk legends, the Mekons, and alt-country live favorites, the Waco Brothers, both of which are still together.  He's also found time to be a prolific solo artist, having recently released his sixth solo LP, Here Be Monsters.  Guess what?  It has also garnered heaps of praise from the critics.  In this two-round chat before his show at the Bell House, Jon explains how the album got its name and how his work as a visual artist played a significant role in the record's creation.  Things get political during beer #2, just as you'd hope from a true punk rocker.
