No, I think it's the same person. I still stick to the theory that
the Representative retired from his day job a couple of years ago
either through ill health (which has possibly been recurrent for
quite some time) or simply because he had reached retirement age, and
decided to take to the road. What might have happened is that he
hadn't recorded for some time, and built up a backlog which were
slowly being released as time and money allowed and now that he is
free to travel, play and release the live shows, there will be fewer
'studio' CDs. The live environment also gives him the opportunity to
open up and sing, which isn't always easy if you're recording in your
basement at night or something.
It does give rise to an idea that I have been juggling with for a
while though... what if a Jandek gig was announced and when everyone
got there, it was a different Representative?
