Featured Image for Jandek


Mystery has shrouded Jandek since the ‘band’s’ music arrived on the scene in 1978 (although calling Jandek a ‘band’ is rather misleading). Since then, Jandek has produced over 60 self-released, often atonal avant-garde blues and folk, albums.
Widely revered by a fan-base consisting of stalwart rockers Sonic Youth, Jandek is believed to be a one-man operation. Part of the musical project’s allure is the often ambiguous mix of performance art with the music. A nameless ‘representative’ from Corwood Industries (Jandek’s label) played the ‘band’s’ first show in 2004. Since then, this ‘representative’ has appeared a few times a year to play with some of the best musicians in the world.

Jandek will be playing September 6th at Issue Project Room with consummate drummer, Ryan Sawyer, Susan Alcorn, Shazad Ismaily, C. Spencer Yeh, and the Nate Wooley Trio. If you’re anywhere near the Eastern Seaboard, this performance in New York is not to be missed.
