[Jandek] Houston performance (Was: Upcoming live releases)

I think the main reason Corwood wasnıt happy with the Houston show was that
the representative wasnıt really in control of the performance.  I get the
sense that from this point forward the only performances heıll be engaging
in will be Jandek shows, not shows where he backs people.  Playing live
takes a lot out of Corwood and I donıt think they feel that unannounced
appearances are really worth it.

Iım also pretty sure Corwood realizes his weird version of semi-celebrity
now and doesnıt want to take away from the featured performers.  Theyıre
fully aware that it was Loren and Alanıs show and want to keep it that way.


PS ­ I could be completely wrong about this.  This is just what Iıve
gathered from a few short correspondences with someone from Corwood.
