Mekons Plan Intimate Fall Tour; Audiences Not Ready For Intimacy With Jon Langford

It was the end of the tour, and Jon Langford could barely contain his relief. It had been a long and arduous musical journey, but now it was complete, as all things will eventually be. Langford lowered his eyes and blushed as he remembered the songs the band had played and the new faces he had met. Oh, how the audience had erupted in applause at the final note! Oh, how thankful Langford was for his many musical blessings! In accordance with tradition, Langford placed his hands on the floor of his dressing room and bowed deeply.

But the tour was not the only thing on Langford's mind; there was also a new album to be worrying about. Fresh tears formed on Langford's eyelashes. Oh, how he wished he could stay forever on stage, surrounded by those who knew his name and appreciated his work, never asking for more! It was only a trifling number of days over one month before his band's new album, Natural, would be released. August 21 was the day he could finally, truly breathe out a deep sigh. Oh, how he and his band had slaved away at those 12 songs! Langford smiled ruefully to himself. He pulled out an old, faded photograph of the band from their early years and chuckled good-naturedly to himself, as he again remembered his band's storied past. Have I been happy with my life thus far? he thought. Langford turned away so his tears wouldn't spoil the photograph. He looked out at the freshly falling snow and began to softly urinate on the shag carpet beneath him.
