h2. Favourite non-Jones gig

Jon Langford and Skull Orchard with the Burlington Welsh Male Voice Choir @ Hardly,Strictly Bluegrass Festival, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco 2008

h2. Favourite Jones song (and why)

Wishing It Away. Haunting, epic and seamless whilst referencing the greatest movie ever made.

h2. Favourite non-Jones song (and why)

Drowned In Wine ( Family ). Prog. rock, folk and heavy metal fused into 5 minutes of desperate genius. Sonic bleater and all round nutter Roger Chapman scornfully screams his intention to resist conformity whilst those around him buckle and fold. Sounds cliched, but is really rather relevant given the current corporate epidemic.

h2. Any other non musical projects?

Fixing the gutters.

h2. What music is changing the world right now?
