ahh that's too bad.  any idea what pieces he slowed down?  any 
other jandek songs similar to the strange beauty of "om"?

i find i'm partial to the higher-voiced, ethereal, acoustic jandek as 
opposed to the hard electric stuff.  although i'm not against the 
drums, i really don't like the electric guitar, and i'm especially tired 
of more traditionally bluesy playing.  based on that, can anyone 
make any more recommendations to me other than Ready for the 
House, Chair Beside a Window, Blue Corpse, and Somebody in 
the Snow?

i think i identified one song i liked as "i'm ready", but the rest of that 
album seems like it's a harder-edged one.  is that the case?
