A good Jandek track I'd never really noticed before: "Kick", off
Interstellar Discussion (1984).  It's about a junkie.  I made some
corrections to the lyrics on the web -- they make more sense now.  The
music is played all on one guitar string (well, maybe two a little
towards the end), and mostly just the same note on that string.  I
wonder if it's a tribute to the Velvet Underground's "Heroin".
