May is Jandek month;the king of American DIY,on Corwood Industries. Home of the best cover art in 'pop' history, and the living proof that if you stick at something for ever, you will get a worldwide profile for it,and....gulp.....fans?! Plodding on regardless of opinion and taste never stopped U2, and it hasn't stopped the semi-mythical Jandek. The difference between Jandek and U2 is that Jandek is good, and U2 are the biggest pile of overbearing pompous ego-filth ever to squeeze out of the buttocks of rock!
Released as by The Units(before the 'other' units threatened legal action), Corwood 0739(why start at 0739?) is guaranteed to clear a room of people in less than 5 minutes.
Jandek's debut album from 1978 will astound you with its 'sheer amusicality or unmusicality or nonmusicality, oh,the sheer emptiness of it. This was an album that started nowhere, went nowhere, and ended up nowhere... It's really like hearing a posthumous recording, a recording that was made after the artist had died.'
All the unpatented Jandek trademarks are there: the detuned death rattle acoustic guitar, the reverby haunted whiny voice, the banal, abstracted and sub- poetic lyrics.The perfect accompaniment for making you feel that life really isn’t worth living.The captured sound of Total Isolation.
