Haven't they done exactly that enough times?

When I read the description of the show, my first thought was that after 
Smile came out last year, Jandek decided to do something more ambitious. Not 
to say there's anything wrong with that, I had the same reaction. (No one's 
going to convince me that someone who writes songs called "License To Kill" 
and "House Of The Rising Sun" isn't affected by outside influences.)
