This thread revival inspired me to pull out the copy of Portland Thursday I had fished out of the dollar bin but had yet to listen to. This is weird but strangely appealing.

with all this the best thing about that Wilson guy is that he made like 68 folk albums of his own atonal music. As well.

with those sealed vinyl records I tend to wonder, does he know if the proper lp is inside? They might be Herb Alpert lp's
will spin Your Turn To Fall this morning (no pun intended) in honor of Naythen

has Jandek become a band with somebody else singing? I just picked up a live set from last week that has a female singer. & presumably the individual who I thought was called Jandek on guitar under the name Coorwood Rep.I'm not that familiar with his previous work but I thought the Jandek ouevre was put out by an individual called Jandek with occasional augmentation by other players. & maybe occasional chord changes.
what's next the Jandek franchise?

well prior to the live shows everyone assumed that the guy on the covers was Jandek. it was a natural assumption to make but he never actually stated outright that he was Jandek. And since the live shows started happening he has never referred to himself by that name and neither have any of the promoters and whatnot who have been involved. he is "a representative of corwood industries". In theory Jandek is the name of the project. When the live CDs are released he stipulates no credits to individual musicians. In practice many people still refer to the person as Jandek and that's fine as well.

Jandek has had the odd collaborator in the past, perhaps most famously the classic Nancy Sings, one of the most beautiful Corwood songs.

his Country & Western Revue show in Easthampton, MA last year had a female singer who was great. duets w/ Jandek is a pretty awesome task

New album Mazes Of The Phantom has become my new "background music to program to." A review out there references early-70s Euro-free-jazz and that's not too far off of a description. Can't wait for his Krautrock phase.

I wish he'd get faster at releasing the live shows. I'd kill to hear that Davis or Irvine show again.
I particularly love the songs from the Irvine show that sounded like fucked up Minutemen, where he'd say something serial killer-y like "I'm coming after you. Coming to get you. You can't get away" and then let Mike Watt do his thing.

It did nothing for me when he joined Kan Mikami & Alex Neilson on Friday night (except cause wishes that he'd not bothered), but the set as the original Glasgow live trio of Jandek with Alex Neilson and Richard Youngs last night was killer in a noisy, discordant, free-rock kind of way - I loved it! Some choice lyrics, especially the cupcakes song (seriously).

I was sorry to have to leave straight after the set, but I was completely exhausted. Would have loved to have taken part in that.
