Jon Langford meet n greet!
Verse Chorus Press, who put out 2005's "Nashville Radio," is releasing a new book of Jon's writings and paintings. For this book, Langford has created a highly personal portrait of Wales, where he was born and raised. It incorporates a CD featuring Langford’s rare album “Skull Orchard,” originally released in 1998 on a label that promptly went bankrupt, and revamped and extended with live material (and a Welsh male voice choir) for this edition. The songs’ lyrics, at once autobiographical and fanciful, are illustrated in a series of “word paintings” scattered throughout the book, which also includes an A to Z of Welsh culture and history (personal and general), thematically related etchings and paintings, family photographs, and Langford’s first published fiction, a dystopian fable about a whale and a dolphin.
Yard Dog will be showing song paintings based on lyrics from the original SKULL ORCHARD album plus new songs exclusive to SKULL ORCHARD REVISITED.
Stay tuned for more info!
