[Jandek] Jandek Live & Corwood

The mp3s I've heard so far sound exactly like that
last few CDs. Deep, throaty voice, hypnotic bass, and
a cat-screaming-in-a-blender guitar tuning. The drums
are the most normal I've ever heard on a Jandek
recording. I don't really like his new stuff, but
given the nature of his music, I'd imagine he'll
probably never play any old stuff if he does more
shows. Of course this means my dreams of hearing "Only
Lover" performed live will remain dreams.

One other pondering: why did he make such a point of
being a "corwood representative". I mean, Sterling,
bro, keep it real. We all know that's there's only one
smokestack at Corwood Industries. He's not fooling
anyone; he's only giving ample evidence of being an
extremely paranoid person. Then again, in these modern
times, who isn't extremely paranoid?

I'm just surprised he didn't hawk his CDs at the show.
Doesn't he need to move them?
