Agree in large part with Michael here. I think the whole Jandek project has
to do with severely interrogating our concept of how personality relates to
music - I do think he's *interested* in how the two intersect/are construed,
but I think he wants to allay any "omg you are so amazing!" stuff that might
come up. The live appearance seems somehow a comment on how sticky the whole
music/person-who-made-it equation really is.
