All The Fame Of Lofty Deeds by Jon Langford

Album Description

Length:00:00

Jon's second solo CD is the cautionary tale of a singer who rises from obscurity to opulence only to gulp heartily from the poison cup of compromise and betrayal to sink back into the dirt and darkness from whence he came. It’s a thinly veiled damning of a culture that trades in optimism, grandeur and glitz, but ultimately depends on sucking people dry.

Lofty Deeds shows Langford’s immense and varied talents in a sharp new light. Yes, his fondness for blurring the irrelevent line between punk and country is here in spades, and the wit that marries the personal with the political is not lost. But, with concise writing and stripped down arrangements, this CD nudges his powerful voice (full of bluster and rolling rrr’s) and lyrics front and center like he’s ready to burst out of your hi-fi and chew on your ear.
