Jandek ‎– "The Door Behind" (Corwood Industries ‎– Corwood 0776) 2004

Released just after Jandek's myth crushing Live appearance in Glasgow. the cover shows the great man as a mountain man/ hermit.
The six songs are basically the same tune split up into six parts; slow moaning vocals over a minimal detuned electric guitar plucked randomly as if by some dead disembodied hand swaying in the breeze. Heavy going, a lonesome howl recorded by a secret microphone stealthily installed in his mountain shack, or in its Texan equivalent; a lonesome trailer home in an abandoned trailer park.
Another open wound so deep, you can see the naked electricity of a tortured soul writhing inside.


1 Do You Want Me 6:09
2 Gate Strikes One 8:52
3 I'm Not That Good 6:18
4 The Slow Burn 6:16
5 It's Only You 6:03
