I used this to translate it:
This yields several references to "the fabled giraffe" (!), and also an
amusing comparison of the representative to Freddie Kruger. The basic gist
of the piece is that the gig was an interesting experience but not one the
reviewer would wish to repeat, conveniently and rather lazily contrasting
Jandek to Daniel Johnston. There's also something about a lot of people
walking out, and several people laughing and talking during the set - I very
much hope this has been exaggerated.
