Jon Langford and His 'Bastion of Unpopular Music'

We've seen Jon with the Wacos, Mekons, solo and with the Four Lost Souls. All kicked ass in different ways. Plus, he's a hell of a guy.

One of the best shows I’ve ever seen was a Mekons show 10-12 years ago. Glorious mayhem!  And The Waco Brothers are of much the same spirit. I read a review once that described the Ramones as racing each other to see who could get to the end of the song first, and the Waco’s, same deal.
