[Jandek] Harp

Hi Brobish,

This comes a bit late, but I've been getting slowly caught up on 
email.  I'm not familiar with the later harp, not having bought the 
last couple years' worth of new discs, but I've always loved the 
through-the-harmonica screams in _Blue Corpse_'s "Harmonica."  I 
think I like that it sounds like "Silent Night" in other places, 
which sets off the screaming nicely.  (And as RocketMorton and John 
Eastridge can verify, I was vastly pleased when accordionist Steve 
Pellegrino duplicated these in his J-night cover of the tune...on 

Earlier than that (say, "Later On" period) it seems like there's a 
Dylan-on-amphetamine quality to the harp playing.
