Jandek ‎– "Gainesville Monday" (Corwood Industries ‎– CORWOOD 0831) 2019

Another "Chair beside a window",like the classic Jandek album of the same name and home of his greatest Hit, "Nancy Sings", adorns this professional sounding improvised set from December the first ,2008,at the Hippodrome State Theatre in Gainesville,wherever that is?
If you think the Guitar work is far too good for Jandek to have been the guitarist, then you are right.He demoted himself to stroking the Bass quietly in the background, and concentrated on his stream of conciousness 'escaped lunatic' vocal style.
The drummer and guitarist,both uncredited, were obviously seasoned improvisers,who must have played together a lot.This sounds as if they were gonna do a gig and found a homeless drunk guy on the street outside the venue to do the vocals for them.Not unlike Can and Damo Suzuki.

Nice review. The guitarist was Rob Rushin and the drummer was Chad Voight. Both Floridians at the time and on serious fire that night.
