And you'd think this list would be the one place where people don't say the 
stuff we listen to is crap. There's an interesting irony in his screen name, 
since people have described both The Barbarians and Jandek in the same way, 
as what The Beatles would have sounded like if they couldn't play or write

that's probably the one I treasure most. At the time, a live Monks show was 
about as likely as a live Jandek show.
