Too Much Effing Perspective: Rock n’ Roll Re-Creation: The Mekons’ Jon Langford
Every performer who’s ever been on the road has at least one bizarro story that could have been pulled straight from the iconic music mockumentary, This Is Spinal Tap. Co-hosts Allen Keller and Alex Hofmann delve deep into their guests’ harrowing, humbling, and hilarious Spinal Tap Moments uncovering universal truths along the way.
In this TMEP classic, Jon Langford taps the deep, dark bowels of punk rock to share his 1979 prediction that U2’s career was “going nowhere”; how Lester Bangs declared the Mekons to be better than REO Speedwagon and Budgie…combined; and about being dissed at the A&M Records Christmas party.
