Jandek has just been announced. Can anyone tell me anything about this artist and any of their good LP's.
he release an album a year for about 20 years or something but never play live until recently?
Other than that I don't have no knowledge. Sorry.
I dont think anyone knew what he looked like till he played live for the first time last year
Ultra reclusive, ultra gloomy.
a bit of a coup that ATP have actually got him to play?
Sounds like an example of the high regard musicians/bands give to the festival. Considering Bert Jansch, Watts Prophets, Vasti Bunyan, Scientists etc are playing shows I think that the festival has got some esteem. And Yoko played last year right?
It is definitely an achievement they got him. Although the majority of his stuff rotates around his suffering so I don't think there's gonna be much euphoria there.
dense tortuous songs, slightly out of tune guitar, wailing vocals. And 43 albums of it. Not music for a summer day or the fragile.
