The Executioner's Last Songs

Mekons legend Jon Langford is putting on an unmissable multi-media show at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff, on August 5 (8pm). Titled The Executioner's Last Songs the performance will include live music, spoken word (ie witty autobiographical ramblings), his own excellent artworks, and recordings of American roots music - all on the theme of the death penalty!

Formerly of Newport but now a citizen of Chicago, Langford is a fervent campaigner against capital punishment. This multi-media extravaganza is a development of his 2002 anti-death penalty record of the same name, made with the likes of Steve Earle, Brett Sparks and Johnny Dowd.

Fellow collaborator Sally Timms will also be taking part and the whole spine-tingling experience will cost you £10 (or £8 concessions). Don't miss out!
