[Jandek] Jandek's Passing

This isn't a subject I really want to think about, but I can say two things
in response to what's here:

1. "whoever books his gigs." That would be him. Curators contact him with a
place and he says yes or no. Sometimes those gigs work out, sometimes not
(he has to want to play there, for instance, and the theatre and band
members have to fit certain - sometimes VERY tricky - ideals that can change
from show to show). I feel very lucky, still, that Denver is happening. At
first, of course, Barry Esson booked the gigs (first UK/ US shows), but I'm
pretty sure everything after Brooklyn has been him and whomever in the area
is trying to get him to play.

2. For someone who relies on so much spontaneity in the music (something I
have always loved), he's incredibly organized in other areas. I guarantee he
has something planned, for the catalog when the time comes... and no I don't
know what it is, and don't plan on asking. But I imagine things are taken
care of, and I'm guessing that releases will continue until absolutely
everything has been released. That's my understanding of the project, mostly
