It hadn't occurred to me to post this, but some while ago I ran into A Certain Alt Country Musician in my local pub, in London. Like Jandek, he's renowned for his numerous collaborators, and ability to pick up high calibre musicians... so the subject of Jandek eventually came up. 
Possibly, the collaborator they had in common was Richard Youngs... but in any case, JM told me that The Rep is indeed quite cryptic; friendly, but keeps questions impersonal / about the musicians rather than himself, and his M.O. is to never give "musical" directions, just say "This song should sound like winter", or describe a place that isn't necessarily in the lyrics (which aren't seen by the musicians). 
Not a huge insight, but, y'know - FYI.
