Langford’s visual art is simultaneously rustic and spellbinding, often depicting the fabled folk and country heroes of the past. Each painting itself is as iconic in stature as the subjects he chooses to adorn with his distressed signature style.
Jon Langford is also a founding member of punk icons the Mekons (celebrating their 40th anniversary this year), as well as alt-country pioneers/rabble-rousers the Waco Brothers. Other projects include the Pine Valley Cosmonauts, Skull Orchard, Bad Luck Jonathan, and collaborations with Australian Aboriginal singer Roger Knox, the Rockabilly Filly Rosie Flores, and The Sadies.
His paintings and prints of the storied figures of rock, blues, and country have been exhibited all over the world, including the Country Music Hall of Fame, where he was also an artist in residence at the famed Hatch Show Print.
“Jon Langford boasts a unique creative energy, unless you can name another individual who helped pioneer cowpunk (The Mekons' Fear And Whiskey) while contributing artwork to craft breweries (Dogfish Head).” - Spin
