Jandek - "Living in a Moon so Blue" (Corwood 0743) 1982

In my rush to post all the Jandek LP's I have, I missed a couple of the very best, and now I've fucked up the chronology!
 "Living in a Moon so Blue" is where Jandek gets more assertive,even aggressive, bashing his acoustic to the point of distortion. Like a unissued recording from Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk, recorded in a 1930's mental institution.
This is where Jandek's stuff starts to get really ‘difficult’ and damaged.Lots of pissed-off down strokes, tracks that build into blister-inducing dirges and into a seriously fucked up mess of naked psychoses.
All in all, Living in a Moon So Blue is one of his best, the presentation and approach seemingly from a different time altogether, like some greyish Eastern Bloc country, around 1962?”
