The Devil & Daniel Johnston (feat. Jason Pierce)
12 March 2006 / 19:30

Musician and artist Daniel Johnston has become a cult figure amongst those in the 'know'.

This special concert brings together many of Daniel Johnston's admirers to perform on the same stage as him. Confirmed guests so far include Mark Linkous (Sparklehorse), Jason Pierce (Spiritualised) and Jad Fair.

An outsider with a history of mental illness, Johnston first came to the public's attention when rock legend Kurt Cobain was seen on MTV sporting Johnston's 'Goofy Frog' t-shirt design. Since then his raw and heartfelt music has been championed by everyone from Tom Waits to Beck.

The release of a compelling documentary The Devil & Daniel Johnston, which had the critics raving at the Raindance film festival, has further generated interest in this enigmatic figure.

Produced by the Barbican

I want to see that documentary though. It played in the SF film festival (at the same time as s1ocki's film!) and i missed it.

Christopher Costello (CGC), Saturday, 14 January 2006 00:57 (twelve years ago) Permalink

From NME last year:

SPIRITUALIZED mainman JASON PIERCE is recovering after an illness left him close to death.

The star, who recently completed work on the band’s new album, is now at home after spending a lengthy time in intensive care for an as-yet-unspecified illness.

But in a posting on the band official website spiritualized.com, his partner Juliette says he is on the mend, but admitted that Pierce’s life was in serious danger during his spell in hospital.

The message reads: "So nearly dying twice in the last 2 and half weeks Jason has now and fantastically made an alarming and brilliant recovery and is due home today."

"He is still fragile and really weak weighing in at maybe 8 stone but love and happiness on his side. Weirdly he is still Jason though."

"No thoughts about how lucky he is just mentioned how mad it is that his record is written almost like he was ill before."

"Not that he's into esp and stuff just in the most beautiful way."

"Love to all and everyone who sent him get well wishes cos he needed it and must have heard it and thankfully he's here and back and coming home."

From Spiritualized.com:

21.07.05 | Jason's illness

As rumoured on the forums both here and at NME.com, J.Spaceman was recently taken critically ill but has been allowed home after a prolonged stay in intensive care and critical care.

Jason contracted advanced periorbital cellulitis with bilateral pnuemonia with rapid deterioration requiring intensive care and c-pap for type 1 respiratory failure.

A truly massive "Thank You" to all the Medical Staff and Nurses at The Royal London Hospital A&E, Cambridge Ward, Intensive Care and Critical Care / Cotton Ward whom all worked so amazingly hard on his treatment and recovery.

"Thank You" also to Intensive Care Dept at St Barts for his 2 day transfer there.

And thanks to all you for your good wishes and thoughts.

I'll YSI it to you once I download my copy- I'm pretty pissed because it was originally posted as a website-only limited edition, and so I ordered it and it cost me $30 US with shipping charges applied, and two weeks later I see it at Amoeba in LA and on US record store websites for $18.

And truth be told, it's not even worth the $18. I'm a huge Spacemen 3/Spiritualized/Spectrum fan, to the point where I even listen to and enjoy the Pure Phase Tones for DJs record, and this is the worst thing Jason has ever done.

Go buy the new Sunroof! record instead....

Between this release and the directional shift on Amazing Grace, and the lack of any new Spectrum material after years of claims, I'm thinking we may have reached the final frontier for the Spacemen. Really sad.

The last E.A.R. release was actually pretty good, though.

And at least these guys have the whole drugs excuse, so I've never had the same crushed expectations with them that I've had every time I hear the name Kevin Shields....

um the treader records thing is run by spring heel jack who are now big on their improv. If you don't like improv, you almost certainly won't like any of the cds on their label... I've not heard guitar loops but would reckon it would be similar to J Spaceman's work on "masses" and "ammassed" two SHJ records... I don't know where drugs come into this really...?

Loving this so far. One of the most consistent albums he's put out since 2001 imo. It's pretty much a continuation of where he's been for the past 2 albums but I feel like he's perfected it here. Nothing will probably ever compare to Let It Come Down, Ladies and Gentleman, Pure Phase or his Spacemen 3 stuff mostly due to where I was at in my life but this is definitely my favorite since those days.

Also, can't shake the "Baby I'm Just A Fool" melody from "Let's Dance". Love em both but in my head it's acting as a sequel.

Spiritualized was one of my favorite bands for a long time, but it's been diminishing returns for years now. The new one is less half-assed than the last couple, but is pretty dull regardless. I'm not surprised they still do a great live show though.

not Elvis but short answer, yes. i have seen them now three times. once on the Pure Phase tour, then i saw them as the opening band on the OK Computer tour. as you may or may not know they only had two US dates, one in New York and last nights in Los Angeles. i feel very fortunate that i was able to see this show. i think Jason might be having health issues, i don't know for sure but he did sit down the whole time and is very skinny but he sounded so beautiful last night. he had a 30 piece band behind him. adding him there were 31 people on stage, it was a very special night as there is no way he can do this for a full tour. they started with some older songs and then after around the seventh song they played the new album front to back. i have only been listening to the new album for the last few weeks so i knew it inside and out. i love the new song and now reading the above article it a very good last album ever by Spiritualized. they ended the show with the last song from that album and did a three song encore. they had a 10 women back round singers that made it feel like a southern church choir. as most of you know, a lot of songs have to do with Jesus so it worked very well. this show would have been a junkies paradise as i felt like i was on drugs when i was not. his voice is stronger than ever and his Spiritualized backing band was on point all night long. there were two drummers too. a very special band and i would see them if they add more dates, it was well worth it.

I love the new album but I have been left wondering how much better it would have been if he'd been able to have the gospel choir & orchestra on it a la LAGWAFIS.

It's great to have a chance to hear them like that in these live videos and I wonder if/hope we'll see another live album in the not too distant future. Or at least a bootlegged soundboard recording of one of these shows.

It's somewhat difficult to answer this one. I've seen Spiritualized 16 times now - the first time was in 1992 when there were still a quorum of Spacemen 3 members in the band (Jon Mattock on drums) and the last time (until last week) was 21 years later at Pappy & Harriets during a Joshua Tree windstorm (Kid Millions on drums). Both shows included "Medication" and for me, that's about as good as it gets. LGM is my favorite album. Never really cared for LAGWAFIS much until I saw it performed live start-to-finish at Radio City in 2010 when that potential of krautrock gospel + Sun Ra transcendence finally lined up. It's that potential that keeps me coming back.

I would be so much happier with the new album if it was a well-recorded "wall of sound" with all of the players from these shows rather than something pieced together from Jason's computer.

I was at the Los Angeles show, and I was happy to see "Hold On" get so much shine. I have always loved that song and have never seen much praise for it around. I did think some details from the new record got lost in the wash with the big ensemble, but Lord, it washed over me.

I'm glad Stay With Me has come back into his setlists, that song is great and always felt like a kind of bastard child from between Pure Phase and LAGWAFIS that got overlooked
