Mystery White Boy

For 20-odd years he's been moaning into a tape recorder. He doesn't do press and he never plays live. Investigating the legend of Jandek.

Crazy/beautiful? The man believed to be Jandek
Crazy/beautiful? The man believed to be Jandek

Yet part of me wonders whether my complaints have anything to do with these new albums--if, in fact, my incompatibility with Jandek is not his fault but my own. I've escaped the mess of suburban sprawl and retreated to the happy calm of the countryside. My head no longer cluttered, I don't find Jandek's current pathology illuminating: Unmasked, it suddenly sounds single-minded and, well, pathetic. Maybe, with my newfound contentment, I'm no longer able to access the depths of feeling concealed within Jandek's music. That, even more than his music, would be truly terrifying.
