Jandek – "London Sunday" (Corwood Industries – CORWOOD 0847) 2021

This one's from 2008.......he is dead isn't he?......Recorded in front of a full house of London metrosexual trendies. If it wasn't enough to have the Representative on stage as your performing monkey, there's a bloke form the No-Neck Blues band on bass to make any avid Wire magazine subscriber cream his jeans....and believe me, it is always a he/his when it comes to stuff like this,no further pro-nouns required.
Whether it be making unprovoked warfare, unlistenable clap-trap that you are told is 'good'.or appreciating paintings by kneeling down on one knee and tweaking ones chin for twenty minutes, it's all done by the male of the species. Women are only now saving us non non-binary types from the joys and pitfalls of association Football,now we XY chromosome nerds need the fairer sex and their derivatives, to help save us from the joys and pitfalls of rubbish music passed off as works of genius...(something I am regularly guilty of?)....if that's successful,and this is the big one,maybe the onslaught of non-binary humans can save us from War?.......I doubt it very much, especially as its becoming increasingly clear that we maybe on the wrong end of a tactical Nuclear weapon or two very shortly thanks to the distinctly binary,as in split personality,self-elected president of the shithole that is Russia. He certainly has a split personality,and I hate both of them....i can sum up how i feel about this Phil Collins look-a-likey in the verses of one of England's finest poets:
Mr John Cooper-Clarke's "Twat":

Like a nightclub in the morning, you're the bitter end
Like a recently disinfected shithouse, you're clean round the bend
You give me the horrors
Too bad to be true
All of my tomorrows
Are lousy 'cause of you
You put the Shat in Shatter
Put the Pain in Spain
Your germs are splattered about
Your face is just a stain
You're certainly no raver, commonly known as a drag
Do us all a favor, here, wear this polythene bag
You're like a dose of scabies
I've got you under my skin
You make life a fairytale
People mention murder, the moment you arrive
I'd consider killing you if I thought you were alive
You've got this slippery quality
It makes me think of phlegm
And a dual personality
I hate both of them
You're bad breath, vamps disease, destruction, and decay
Please, please, please, please, take yourself away
Like a death a birthday party
You ruin all the fun
Like a sucked and spat-our Smartie
You're no use to anyone
Like the shadow of the guillotine
On a dead consumptive's face
Speaking as an outsider
What do you think of the human race?
You went to a progressive psychiatrist
He recommended suicide
Before scratching your bad name off his list
And pointing the way outside
You hear laughter breaking through, it makes you want to fart
You're heading for a breakdown
Better pull yourself apart
Your dirty name gets passed about when something goes amiss
Your attitudes are platitudes
Just make me wanna piss
What kind of creature bore you
Was it some kind of bat?
They can't find a good word for you
But I can

The Jandek album is very good by the way,a return to old skool electric Jandek...but then again what do I know? I'm one of those Metrosexual Trendies who I referred to earlier, who would say that wouldn't he?
I also referred to myself in the third person,something I have yet to hear Vlad the Pute do,but if he did I'd hate all three of him.

Nazi Russians Fuck Off!

Wire subscriber or otherwise, NNCK were frequently quite good. They were crap just as often, but that's ok. Can't tell you how many times Keith Connelly would walk around for an entire set just spinning a metal bowl on his fingertips or something. I honestly don't know whether or not he ever actually contributed to the actual sound in any way.

Anyways, if you follow Sheila (no relation) Smith's twitter feed--and who doesn't?!--you'll find occasional alleged updates on the Rep's going ons. So who knows, maybe he's still alive--or it could be an imposter.

I know one shouldn't yield to one's own hidden xenophobic tendencies, so I suppose I shouldn't appreciate your anti-Russian stance. But then, I think one shouldn't listen to too much Jandek either. So, again, many thanks!

I should have stipulated Russians who support the Twat,rather than all russians....but they have to understand they ain't welcome unless they overthrow their nazi it ain't xenophobia as such,its political....nay stop your apologist stance and get more jandek in your life....while you still have one

FlaccusMUC said...

Yes, you're right, thank you again (this feels like therapy ...).
