The Odd Couple

“Jon just works. He doesn’t sleep. He’s like a bat,” says songwriter Richard Buckner, who Langford lured to Chicago to help record an album. “He’s a pure, sweet guy, and I think his art is pure.”

A match made in purgarory..

These are two of my favorite artists doing a very unexpected one-off collaboration.

Mekon Jon Langford and Devotion and Doubt Richard Buckner get together in Sally Timm's pad to lay down some tunage.

Like Ruben Blades said, "La vida te da sorpresas, sorpresas te da la vida, Ay Dios!"..

I debated on whether or not to post this, but I decided I would since it's a tough-to-find cd, particularly for us thirld-world types.

That being said, please, please, PLEASE:

BUY the cd if you hear this and do enjoy it.


Thanks for having me back. enjoy.
