Fully agree with Legendtofski:) Bring on Jandek in academia. I would totally attend the lecture if I wasn't living in Australia. Is there any way of getting a transcript or something:)?

I mean sheesh they have courses in hiphop, queercore, grunge, moderne indi and other rubbishy music, why not Jandek?

Academia? wow, my head's spinning in a good way. How can anyone give a grounded lecture or debate about any kind of truly original music? Human genetics are so complex that any documented thoughts or criticisms on something that sounds like nothing else -- Sonny Sharrock, Tom T. Hall, Wolfmangler, Jack Nitzsche, Patty Waters, Scratch Acid -- comes off as a description of an acid trip or a dream that can never be repeated. If anything to do with Jandek (especially Khartoum, my heavens!) comes up on a final examination, there's something wrong with the world. Please do not let the terrorists win.
Confession: I'm like totally tripping right now. Cheers then.

Very intrigued by this event. I gave a talk on Jandek in the music department at Newcastle University in November last year. There was a LOT of resistance to the music on the part of the audience (I played them 'I Shot Myself' from Khartoum), but I did find an ally in one of the performers in the department prior to the talk.
I also know that a lecturer in the Philosophy department at University College Cork, Ireland played several tracks by Jandek as part of a third year course on Theories of Interpretation ('The Park' from Ruins of Adventure was featured prominently). Any other accounts of Jandek in academia?
