JANDEK LIVE?!...

Yes, people, it's true, and as per usual I'm one of the last people to find out, or so it seems: the biggest recluse in show business has come out after 26 years of silence and played an honest-to-god LIVE GIG. Last weekend Jandek played a totally unannounced show - the deal was that he would only play if he was back-announced after the gig... go figure that out - at the Instal Festival in Glasgow, with limey experimental stalwart Richard Youngs on bass and Alexander Neilson on drums. From all reports it was real good, too, so who knows, maybe the man has overcome his shyness and we'll see a whole lot more of him now. Time to dust off some old records for a spin...
