Jandek ‎– "The Rocks Crumble" (Corwood Industries ‎– Corwood 0746) 1983


Its fucking Monday again, and time to fuck off back to classic electric period Jandek, with one of my top fab five Jandek albums; the self-describing "The Rocks Crumble" LP from back in '83.
It is pretty much a portrayal of not only the rocks of existence crumbling, but, Rock and Roll crumbling before our very ears!
Deconstructed Rock at its most unpretentious.
we are treated to three more consecutive versions of "European Jewel"!? The number 613 is appended to the title of track three.......does this mean there are over 600 recorded versions of this 'tune'? Maybe a posthumous box set will spring into our reality one of this crazy ol' years?...The complete  European Jewel.....like those Miles Davis complete 'On The Corner Session' box sets?
Betcha never thought Miles davis and Jandek would be mentioned in the same confused grammar-free sentence did ya?

Tracklist:

A1 Faceless 2:47
A2 Birthday 2:45
A3 European Jewel 613 5:00
A4 European Jewel II 3:36
A5 European Jewel 501 5:02
B1 Message To The Clerk (Part 1) 2:59
B2 Message To The Clerk (Part 2) 4:37
B3 Branded On A Telephone 3:32
B4 Breathtaker 4:27
B5 Lonesome Company 2:53
B6 Same Road 2:53
