HELL HAS FROZEN OVER.

The end times are here kiddies. Thats right, the signs of the apocalypse are mounting. It's only a matter of time. First, Brian Wilson went back and finished Smile. And now... this.



For those of you that don't recognize the man in the photo, That is Jandek. Jandek played live at a festival in Scotland over the weekend. For those of you who know who Jandek is, allow me to reiterate this. JANDEK PLAYED LIVE.

Here are Mp3's of the final 3 songs of his 8 song set - so far as I know, noone has identified these yet. If anyone has titles, please toss 'em my way:
Song 6
Song 7
Song 8


Now. For those of you who don't know who Jandek is. First off, the magnitude of Jandek playing live, is to Brian Wilson finishing Smile, as the completion of Smile is to Usher rereleasing his latest album. It's THAT BIG A DEAL to folks who are concerned with Jandek. Who is he? Jandek is a dude from Houston who, for over 30 years has been making music, and releasing it himself, under his own Corwood Industries label. He has NEVER performed live. NEVER allowed himself to be photographed (other than his own album covers), and NEVER consented to an interview. A bit of the mystery came down earlier this year with the release of the documentary Jandek on Corwood (Buy the DVD!), but for the most part, he was still a pretty damned reclusive figure. And then, in Scotland this weekend, he performed. The music live, just like on record, is trying to listen to. It's not for everyone. But the desolation of the sound - the sparseness of his guitar playing, the shuffling and thuddering floorboard percussion. The howled vocals - alwsy sung, no matter how off key, never surrendering to his shortcomings, is 100 % Jandek. This is no hoax. And now, one must wonder, is The End of it All not a signal of retirement, but of a return? or, really in Jandeks case, a first coming?

Yes, a big deal. Thanks for understanding, thanks even more for posting these. I don't think there are titles yet, but Corwood announced plans to release the concert on CD and DVD!!! As someone called it on the Jandek mailing list, "The Day Everyone's Brain Exploded".

absolutely true...i have a couple friends from texas who trade "jandek" sightings, but doubt the veracity of said reports. to have seen him live...wow. i think yr correct about the veritable end being near. i saw jandek on corwood about a month ago here in chicago at the gene siskel film center. there were maybe 6 of us there, including me and my girlfriend. sad. great film though. i had actually considered doing a jandek post on my own blog, but yrs i perfect. alas. can you tell us where you got the mp3's? ok...probably not. thanks for the tunes to carry me over 'til the next release.

that post is astonishingly badly written. shocking.Thanks anonymous. Real helpful comment that. Admittedly, it's far from my best writing. It was a rushed entry because I have a few other things on my mind at the moment. Hopefully past and future posts will be more up to your standards.

And BigRockCandyMountain - drop me an email if you want the rest of the show - I'll see what I can do for you.

Hey, thanks for putting these up. I had heard there were mp3's of his show floating around, but hadn't located any until now. Thanks!

Thanks for putting those up, I was having a hell of a time finding them. There was one guy who'd posted them, and got hammered with $200 of over-bandwidth fees right away. They're floating around Soulseek if anyone wants the rest of the tracks.

As far as I can see by scanning the Jandek list archives, these are new tunes. The lyrics have been transcribed on the list.

David Tibet says that there'll be a CD and DVD (!) of the show on Corwood eventually. And that he'll be on MTV Unplugged on Christmas. I made up that last bit.
