Who loves him?
he's pretty good, but i've not quite grasped the obsession some people have.
I saw him at ATP and he is interesting, but good? hmm. I like the way he is clearly and literally moaning at all times (from the stuff I have heard anyway).
Much prefer the full band amplified improv of live stuff like Glasgow Sunday (this was his OUT ! ! gig wasn't it?) than the acoustic records. There's a lot of them. I like the live stuff despite Jandek himself often, I think. It reminds of VU a bit.
Alex Neilson is the drummer on most of the live stuff, he often works with Richard Youngs and is linked to the whole Volcanic Tongue/ Keenan / Glasgow scene. Jandek is thought to be called Sterling Smith.
it was very very interesting.
that - Introduction to Corwood Industries or something, isn't it? Is it available anywhere though?
my friend imported the dvd.
richard youngs like? i've been meaning to check him out for a while
solo guitar stuff = brilliant
noise stuff with Simon Wickham-Smith = brilliant
solo shakukachi experiments = ...not so good...
he puts out about 50 things a year, so it is hard, but you NEED "Sapphie" and "Ceaucescu".
Jandek is one of those people people would be totally meh about were it not for the mystery and story behind his albums.
Some of it is really quite harrowing, in a good way, while some is fucking appalling (see the a cappela albums).
