Title: Chair Beside A Window
Format: LP
Label: Corwood Industries
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"The grainy, haunted beauty of Jandeks early work went through many phases, never quite as varied and multi-faceted as the material on his 4th album, Chair Beside A Window released in 1982. The relatively wide range of Chair Beside A Window gives insight into the influences on the seemingly impenetrable Jandek sound. Hearing the blown-out harmonica bluster of You Think You Know How To Score its hard not to imagine it as the Jandek equivalent of a Dylan phase, however insanely translated. Most notable in terms of both variance and firsts is the standout track Nancy Sings, featuring the first time we hear an outside vocalist. This song, a sad and empty blues featuring stunning female vocals, could easily be argued for as the moment freak-folk was born. Nods to folk blues, early gospel and even some strange takes on group jams appear. The layers of intentions and emotional frequency are always a mystery, but the mystery is more colorful and relatable here than it ever was before. Vinyl for this album has been unavailable since the initial pressing and has been sought ravenously by collectors ever since. Working in direct collaboration with Corwood Industries, were thrilled to offer this exact repress, heavyweight-vinyl edition." -Corwood Industries

Reissue of the 13th Jandek album, originally issued by Corwood in 1986. "A song like For Today, w/its sparsely-plunked notes and melancholically assertive vocals, could almost be an out-take from one of Michael Hurleys classic albums on Racoon... As the soul of individualism is being destroyed by the forces of evil, Jandeks flame is an especially bright beacon in the dark." - Byron Coley.

Title: Glad To Get Away
Format: CD
Label: Corwood Industries
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
"Jandek is an obscured Texan who has been privately releasing beautiful documents of fractured, internalized song genius, since the very late 70s. There have been no tours, no interviews, no public appearances but the representation of individualistic creation has never been more perfectly rendered than via the Corwood discography. Utilizing guitars (one at time, both acoustic or electric), voice and percussion, this is music from the ultimate void -- vaguely related to genres like folk, blues and avant-garde but in the end it can only be the sound of Jandek. And theres never been anything else quite like it. There were 22 previous LPs released, all of which are now out of print (CD reissues are happening & near complete). Graven Image was Corwoods first CD-only release (now o/p). Glad to Get Away is the 2nd Jandek CD, an all-acoustic masterpiece. Haunting, eternal genius, continued." - FE

As a viewer you get to chose: "Camera 1", "Camera 2" or the "2 camera mix edit." Wow. This DVD features the complete set from Jandeks historic concert in Glasgow, his first ever public performance. The group is a trio, with Richard Youngs on bass and Alex Nielson on drums. The "representative from Corwood" plays a black guitar, wears a black hat and sounds just right. The music is the same as the Glasgow Sunday CD, released one year earlier, but the visuals here are exceptional (in a basic "pro" fashion) and allow all sorts of new & vigorous insights into the Jandek portfolio. No bonus material, no Easter egg."

"Repressed. Graven Image was the first Jandek CD (originally released in 1994) and when it went out of print a couple years ago, a whole legion of loafers freaked out and jumped into an extended Ebay clikathon. But now its back, thanks to Corwoods relentless pursuit of availabity. Jandek is an obscured Texan who has been privately releasing beautiful documents of fractured, internalized song de-con, since the very late 70s. There have been no tours, no interviews, no public appearances but the representation of individualistic creation has never been more perfectly rendered than via the Corwood discography.

Title: Later On
Format: CD
Label: Corwood Industries
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
The third Jandek album from 1981, reissued for the first time ever. "Another installment in the digitization of the Jandek back catalog, and for those who have never heard his earliest records because of their scarcity, you can now own another piece of the Corwood catalog without having to fend off those cutthroat members of the Jandek community. This record, like Jandeks first (Ready for the House), is comprised of not just basically one chord throughout, but as far as I can tell he barely even touches the fret board of his guitar, using his instrument more for atmosphere and percussion than anything like a song. The usual lyrical motifs of the blues are all over the place, including women, roads, death, and even janitors, which in my tweaked view of the universe hearkens back to Howlin Wolfs paean to a custodian on his last record ca. 1972 (Watergate Blues), and much like the Loren Mazzacane Connors Unaccompanied Acoustic Guitar Improvisations Vols 1-9 1979-1980 box set reissue on Ecstatic Yod, this is proof that something that might be called the blues can be non-formulaic, just undiluted expression, and actually just a skeleton on which to drape a very whacked universe of your very own." -- Billy Kiely

Title: Living In A Moon So Blue
Format: CD
Label: Corwood Industries
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
Reissue of the 5th Jandek album, originally released in 1982. "The title for this one actually comes from a lyric from his track Can I See Your Clock from his second LP Six And Six, and so one can already see The Artist creating an oeuvre filled with allusions, hints, motifs that really dont point at anything in particular. Herein lies one of Jandeks peculiar charms: his songs resilience. We find him in a more aggressive mode here -- singing and playing here like he really means it; therein lies another charm: we are never really sure what he means. All in all, Living In A Moon So Blue is one of his best, the presentation and approach seemingly from a different time altogether, how about some grayish Eastern Bloc country, ca. 1962?" -- Billy Kiely

Title: Lost Cause
Format: CD
Label: Corwood Industries
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
Reissue of Jandeks 21st album, originally issued in 1992. "Side one has 7 non-datable tracks of depressed blues-destroying ramble... Early optimism on the opening tracks transmutes into full desolation by the closing hack-gulps at the end... The Electric End is a nineteen-plus minute excursion into frothful extremes. Piercing electro-search guitar, revolutionary ultra-primitive drumming, lost-mind vocalism of real cracked creation and some sort of high end squeal (a penny whistle?) combine in an incredibly wasted fashion." - FE

Three tracks, with the last one, "Silent Wander," clocking in at just under thirty minutes. On the cover: the charming, Flowbee-haircut era Corwood representative adorned in flannel, in a classic hands-folded pose. The legend continues, now even hotly tipped by Mandy Moore."

17th album, originally issued in 1988. Features a darkly obscured color photograph of a drum kit barely illuminated at dusk through a window shade. Im not sure it really translates on CD, but in original LP form it rated as one of the more staggeringly oblique jackets of all time. Working within blues-rock realms this one features "real" drums, bass, dual electric guitars, a possible guest vocalist on some tracks, etc. "Ill Sit Alone and Think A Lot About You" isnt far from Skip Spence-like detachment. "The most varied and easily-accessed Corwoodian brain-scrambler in a while... Of course, if you pay close attention you discover that the central core is as explosively cathartic as any of Jandeks previous recs." -- Byron Coley.

20th album, originally issued in 1991. "Electric guitar (sometimes one, sometimes two) and vocals, no woman singer, no acoustic guitar, drums about a third of the time. Yellow Pages is a kind of cousin to European Jewel. Alehouse Blues is a pretty straight electric blues. Upon the Grandeur is built around a very beautiful winding figure on the guitar; theres also a second guitarist and someone thumping along throughout on a kettle drum (?).

Title: Put My Dream On This Planet
Format: CD
Label: Corwood Industries
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
"Record number twenty-nine in the ever growing oeuvre of Jandek, and its certainly a head-scratcher. No guitar, no drums, no piano, just him rambling on for a small eternity in a sort of song/speech mode on two lengthy and one very short tracks; all of it sounding kind of like it was recorded though a 15 watt Peavey Bandit amp with a broken reverb spring and a noise-gate pedal. Eerie (some might say annoying or god awful), almost bluesy hiss bathed vocals are separated by some rather lengthy periods of complete silence, covering some of the places and feelings that populate his other records so vividly. Reading into it a bit (for in this place everything means something), we see that his last record ended with The Beginning (!) -- a 15+ vocal-less (!) piano meditation which certainly clouded the waters when it dropped -- which can now be viewed as an intro to this new acapella recording...you get the idea. So then, as concrete poetry its not so hot, and as some kind of Out Blues piece, its actually rather dire, but viewed in the microscope of the Jandekian Canon, its pretty massive, and thats saying something too." -- Billy Kiely

Format: CD
Label: Corwood Industries
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
"There were plenty of significant events in 1978, ("Youre The One That I Want" by John Travolta & Olivia Newton John was quite a popular track, for example), and one of the most low-key yet significant events was the debut LP release on the Corwood Industries label out of Houston, TX. Mysteriously enough it came out under the name "The Units", but it was obviously a singular vision and not a band. That individual would come to be more commonly known as Jandek, and a total of 28 albums have been issued on Corwood to date. In 1978 however, there was no telling what was to come. Ready For The House was a mostly acoustic guitar/vocal record, of ethereal, shambling post-blues form. It set the stage for one the most individualistic and fascinating bodies of work in contemporary music. The original LP was casually issued in a beautiful color sleeve, featuring a mundane but striking image of a living room chair & table (replicated with almost pop-art brilliance on this CD). No other information was ever offered. As it remains today. Ready For The House sounded like no other record, and its doubtful that more than a handful of copies were sold at the time (promotional copies sent to out radio stations and reviewers were more voluminous). A second Jandek album wouldnt come out till 1981. By the mid-80s a wealth of documentation had occurred and the early Corwood albums became notoriously unavailable just as people were finally getting up the gumption to consider buying them. This record has been "in demand" for over a decade now and Corwood has finally caved in and reissued it proper. Find out what youve been missing for the last 25 years." - FE

Price: $21.00
"The 1978 release of Corwood Industries #0739, Ready For The House, began one of the most compelling, disturbed, and singular legacies in musical history. In the 30 years since this unique debut, Jandek has released 53 albums of mournful, atonal music that continues to defy classification and accessibility. And while the past three decades of intense productivity have yielded a depth of discussion, a handful of legendary live performances and even a film documentary, no amount of time or experience can prepare a listener for the experience of Ready For The House. Beyond stark, beyond oblique, beyond outsider, the first Jandek LP (originally credited to The Units) explores musical territories no one even knew existed, with just a hollowed-out voice and a lonely, detuned guitar. In 1985, it had infamously sold less than ten of the 1000 copies originally pressed, however by 1999, when it was issued on CD, the vinyl had completely disappeared, with original copies changing hands for hundreds of dollars. This exact vinyl repress on Corwood Industries, is the first time Ready For The House has been available on vinyl for nearly 20 years, finally giving collectors and fans the opportunity to own one of the most peculiar, solitary, and strangely magnetic records of all time." - Corwood Industries

Title: Shadow Of Leaves
Format: CD
Label: Corwood Industries
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
"36th Jandek album. Three long tracks, including the 30 minute title track. "Jandek plays bass again, claims to no longer exist, sings about drinking "mechanically produced beverages," and announces plans to think about breathing. Recently he took a walk. The music seems improvised but is satisfyingly varied and tracks the varying moods of the vocals closely. During the long piece, moments of abjection or desperation occur, but they pass; mostly the voice we hear is lucid. Hes leveling with us. When he sings I wont drive my car for the rest of the day, its a fact. The most harrowing moment comes during the last track, a love song that turns threatening: please take my bait... I want to eat you up... youll never get away, you wont want to... you dont have a life, you live in me. The music plunges down to the bottom of the basss range, but by the last line, the point of view has pulled back again to encompass the grand scheme of things." -- Seth Tisue.

"The 2nd Corwood album, reissued on CD. Originally issued in 1981, this was the first actual album to be entitled to an artist named Jandek (the first Corwood album, 0739, was credited to the Units -- although that practice has been abandoned in the CD domain, an epic travesty in the minds of a few hardliners). The cover features a crude black & white photobooth-style portrait of the man weve come to assume as the singer, depicted at his most youthful, ready to accompany the power & glory of the Jandekian muse. Upon its release Six And Six defined Jandek as a significant album artist (no mere one-shot), featuring some of his most mesmerizing variations of trance-blues, especially the 10-minute centerpiece, "I Knew You Would Leave".

Originally issued in 1981, this was the first actual album to be entitled to an artist named Jandek (the first Corwood album, 0739, was credited to the Units -- although that practice has been abandoned in the CD domain, an epic travesty in the minds of a few hardliners). The cover features a crude black & white photobooth-style portrait of the man weve come to assume as the singer, depicted at his most youthful, ready to accompany the power & glory of the Jandekian muse. Upon its release Six And Six defined Jandek as a significant album artist (no mere one-shot), featuring some of his most mesmerizing variations of trance-blues, especially the 10-minute centerpiece, "I Knew You Would Leave". Crucial, all round." - FE.

CD reissue of the 12th Jandek album, originally issued in 1986. From Seth Tisues Jandek web site: "In You Painted Your Teeth, Jandek frenziedly harangues an unknown second person: "Dont paint your teeth! You painted your teeth! DONT PAINT YOUR TEETH! The title Governor Rhodes may refer to James A. Rhodes, the Ohio governor who ordered the National Guard into Kent State; the song itself is a sort of incantation with Jandek and Nancy repeating after each other Celebrate our love, celebrate our magic, chant with love, chant always, etc., in endless variations."

"37th Jandek album, from 2004. 4 tracks, including the 20 minute "One of Those Moments". Vocals, electric guitar, in what one would think of as the "contemporary Jandek style. Cover photo of Jandek is hard to date, but more formal than usual -- how suprising." - FE

Format: CD
Label: Corwood Industries
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
"35th Jandek album. "The Gone Wait" was a track on 1993s The Twelvth Apostle album, now its an album title. This has happened before, and will happen again. Five tracks, good titles: "I Went To Hell", "I See The Open Door", "I Was A King", "I Just Might Go Now", "I Found The Right Change". Cover photos features a continuation of the Cork window shopping theme that has developed through the 770 series of Corwood releases. This time: sale pricing. Musically, a new style: acoustic guitar and electric bass duoes, with Jandeks vocals teetering into almost-Steve Martin territory." - FE

"49th Jandek release, and the final release of 2006. Cover art is the same re-cropped cover art as 2006s What Else Does The Time Mean?, focusing more intently on the red-haired adolescent. This CD contains such compelling track titles as "Completely Yours" and "Mysteries Of Existence." More plodding bass and world-weary vocals." - FE.

Title: Twelfth Apostle
Format: CD
Label: Corwood Industries
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
Reissue of Jandeks 22st album, originally issued in 1993. This had been the final release during Corwoods vinyl era and now with this release, their CD reissue program is at last complete. "The most pure Jandek album since Blue Corpse -- rock and/or blues overtones are basically absent. All-acoustic, one guitar only, no drums, three to four minute songs. Uniquely, a heavy echo effect is added to the guitar on several songs on side two. Mood is thorny, ambivalent, a little impersonal, serious but not depressed like Blue Corpse. This is the first album in Jandeks late period; stylistically, it resembles the CDs that follow, not the LPs that came before." -- Seth Tisue.

"The title of track three, "Will There Be No More Photos," prompts an interesting question: just how many photos does this guy have of himself throughout the different stages of his life? What will happen when he runs out? Miraculously, after all these years, this album cover is another winner: just in time for the fall season, we are treated to a handsome young Corwood representative standing in a yard covered in beautiful fall foliage. Looking sharp in a suit and tie, he looks ready for the prom -- or a funeral... And the music? Well, Jandek is Jandek. World-weariness, isolation and some harmonica." -- Corwood Industries.
