Live at TOC: Jon Langford & Skull Orchard play 1234ever
It's been a while since we've had the pleasure of hosting Jon Langford. So long, in fact, that the prolific songwriter couldn't even remember whether he'd visited us at the same State & Jackson headquarters where we've resided for the last five years. We're tempted to chalk it up to old age. After all, the Welsh ex-pat visited us just a day after celebrating his 53rd birthday. Promoting his new album, Old Devils, Langford brought along two members of his band Skull Orchard—backup singer Tawny Newsome and lead guitarist Jim Elkington (who's no stranger to our offices, either). In advance of a record release blowout this weekend at Martyrs', the trio blew through an acoustic rendition of "1234Ever." Read our interview with Langford in this week's magazine. And look for more Skull Orchard on the blog tomorrow.
Recorded by John Dugan with a Blue Microphones Yeti and Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG20 at Time Out Chicago.
