There's a great book concering the Mekons. Titled "Hello Cruel World," it's a collection of their lyrics (around 120 songs), many of them hand-lettered and illustrated by the band, plus reproductions of handwritten lyric drafts (complete with crossings out, etc.), and great photos of the band by photographer/US tour manager Anne Lehman.


Verse Chorus Press of Portland, Oregonhas published NASHVILLE RADIO, a collection of Jon Langford’s artwork and writings, in February 2006. Packed with hundreds of lavish full-color reproductions of Jon’s paintings and etchings, it also contains lyrics, excerpts from THE EXECUTIONER’S LAST SONGS spoken word performance and an exclusive acoustic CD of Langford performing the songs that relate most closely to his artwork.


Natural CD
