Jandek

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Jandek - The Living End The Living End
Pop New - LP 0756 Corwood Industries
Sealed 1989 Loner Folk-Psych Rarity Out Of Houston, Texas. “Some Have Described Jandek As The Sort Of Musician Who Was Destined To Be A Cult Phenomenon, Though It's Quite Remarkable That He's Managed To Attract Any Following At All. Jandek Isn't An Artist Who Has Covered His Tracks So Much As He's Struggled To Avoid Leaving Any -- He Releases His Own Albums, He Only Sells Them By Mail Order, He Doesn't Talk To The Press, He Doesn't Sit For Photographs, And The Rare Few Who've Communicated With Him Can't Even Get Him To Admit He Is Jandek (He Prefers To Identity Himself As "A Representative Of Corwood Industries," The Name Of His Self-Run Record Label). This Tends To Fit The Nature Of His Body Of Work, Which Is Curious At Best, Frequently Off-Putting, And Obsessively Personal -- Jandek's Recordings Are Dominated By Spare, Atonal Guitar Figures, Mumbled Vocals Sometimes Punctuated By Fevered Howls, Self-Abasing Lyrics, Minimal Chord Structures, And Chaotic Accompaniment (When There Is Any). However, While Jandek Isn't Interested In Developing A Warm Relationship With His Audience, His Commitment To His Muse Is Impressive -- Jandek Released More Than 45 Albums Between 1978 And 2006, With No Signs That He Intends To Stop Any Time In The Immediate Future.” Mark Deming, All Music Guide.... more details
 
Jandek - Modern Dances Modern Dances
Psych New - LP CORWOOD 0752 Corwood Industries
Sealed 1987 Original. “Not To Be Confused With The Pere Ubu Album The Modern Dance. Jandek Tries Out Different Versions Of His Psycho-Classic "Painted My Teeth." Here He Duets With Nancy In What Sounds Like One Of Those Rowland S Howard/Lydia Lunch Junky-Goth Duets. Nancy Appears On A Lot Of Tracks Here, The Two Of Them Yelling And Hollering And Each Other, Especially On The Clanging Opus "I Want To Know Why" In Which Nancy And Jandek Keep Asking Each Other 'Why'? Then Its Back To One-Man Mope-Mode To Balance Things Out For The Last Three Tracks, Where It Seems, From The Tone Of Songs, That Nancy Might Have Just Gone Up And Left.” Perfect Sound Forever.... more details
