Jandek - "Six and Six" (Corwood 0740) 1981

there was a three year gap between the first two LP’s — Jandek’s 'lost years',even more 'lost' than the years that he wasn't 'lost'?Musically, this is the most catatonic and monochromatic Jandek LP, the most sullen and withdrawn. The songs drift past one by one like ships in the fog, propelled by a mogadon fuelled acoustic guitarist working slow on steady variations of the same handful of cracked notes. Even more than the first LP, this is the distilled essence of Jandek, the baseline from which the rest of this un-music develops.Probably my favourite Jandek album,if the words favourite and jandek are allowed in the same sentence?
