JANDEK ON CORWOOD (2003)
i can't believe this came out 10 years ago already. soon after this documentary was released jandek made his first ever live appearance, kicking off his most prolific period yet (he's self-released over 60 albums at this point). he still performs regularly all over the world, including a show in vancouver in 2009 (which i didn't go to because i'm clearly a complete moron). the music/cover art is disturbing and haunting and strangely beautiful. taken as a whole, truly one of the most amazing works of self-referential (self-conscious?) "outsider" art ever. sometimes there's only one kind of music that's appropriate to listen to when you're in a certain kind of sleep-deprived, self-destructive, hearing voices/talking to yourself, total creepout mood: jandek music.
