Get a sneak peek of what will be going on in Austin, Texas this March when SXSW official selection screens at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles on February 19th.
Who is Jandek? What is Corwood Industries? Over the past 25 years, an enigmatic musician named Jandek has released 35 albums on his own label; the music has been described as sounding like “a deathbed Neil Young” and “someone who has a completely untuned guitar and is just sort of
meandering and yelling over it.” Jandek has counted among his incredibly small circle of admirers such people as Beck, Kurt Cobain and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth. What adds to his mystique is the fact that he’s steadfastly refused to grant any interviews or give out any biographical information – making him arguably the most underground/obscure/cult musician of the past 25 years.
