Re: Jandek

Another instance of synchronicity within the collective of member interests! This artist has already been discussed within these forums, though buried in somewhat inappropriate forum category. I have moved both related posts to the Wayward Distractions/Musicians/Various category.

The aforementioned Jandek thread can be seen here:
Anyone heard of Jandek?

Upon reading the recommendation of Jandek by The New Nonsense, I proceeded to seek out his music and there are now many selections available for listening within the TLO MusicBox. The MusicBox is accessible from the TLO main menu, though you must be registered and logged in for access.

Re: Jandek

I only have two of his albums but they're absolutely wonderful. There's some kind of strange, sad beauty to his dissonant melodies.

I couldn't agree more; Jandek's style is truly remarkable. Which albums do you own, ramonoski? At the moment I only have Blue Corpse, but I've listened to several others (such as Chair Beside a Window,You Walk Alone, & On the Way) numerous times via YouTube & Pandora. I really look forward to procuring more of his work when I have the funds to do so.

Re: Jandek

I have Ready for the House and Chair Beside a Window. The latter is probably my favourite of the two. If I may...


I too have resorted to youtube to listen to other albums I don't have.

Re: Jandek

If anyone wants to do a bit of reading on Jandek, Irwin Chusid's 'Songs in the Key of Z' is a good place to start. It's a brilliant book that covers a variety of 'outsider' musicians such as Jandek, The Shaggs, Wesley Willis, Lucia Pamela and many others. Chusid has an excellent turn of phrase. As an example, from the chapter on the Legendary Stardust Cowboy - "When the Ledge goes mano a mano with a song, melody goes home with a bloody nose every time." Love it!
