As a founding member of the Mekons, Jon Langford has been making music since the 1970s, so we had a lot to talk about in this two-beer chat at Halyards in Brooklyn. He covers his entire history, from his childhood in Wales, to art school in Leeds, to his migration in the '90s to Chicago, where he formed the Waco Brothers. Now backed by his band, Skull Orchard, he's just released Here Be Monsters, his critically lauded sixth solo LP. Langford also explains how he came to design labels for Dogfish Head Brewery, and reveals the greatest gig he's ever seen.
