[Jandek] Pretentious wankers

I've had a look through all the recent posts, and there seems to be a disbelief that people genuinely enjoy Jandek's music inherent in the criticisms that have been levelled against him.
So this is my personal experience of Jandek. I cant speak for anyone else, but I want to let you know why I like Jandek. When I got into Jandek last year it was because I was attracted to his anonymity. I enjoyed being a part of the mystery.
But that only makes you want to buy the one record. The record i bought was Blue Corpse, and I loved it. To me it was like the music I'd been waiting my whole life to hear, something that was dark yet not overindulgent, that toned in with how I felt about my life. It was outside and not a part of scenes. Since I too am not exactly the most social, I felt Jandek spoke to me in a way very few musicians had ever got across to me. I bought whatever records my local record store got in (MONORAIL RECORDS, GLASGOW) and since then I've been a real avid listener.
I guess maybe I'm that someone somewhere who likes these records. When you say that these albums are "comedy albums" I point you in the direction of tracks like "Point Judith", "First You Think Your Fortune's Lovely" or "Leave all you have" tell me thats the work of a retard.
