Reclusive artist Jandek's 1978 'Ready For The House' LP gets a reissue and it's a captivating listen from the beginning. At it's core this is essentially singer songwriter stuff but it's incrediblly personal and mournfull sounding. I'm just discussing with Phil that he sounds lonely and Brian reckons that his detuned guitar sound has probably driven every woman with ears away so he only has himself to blame. That detuned guitar sound is what I like about this as it gives it a wobbly spacey blues feel. To think that this is 30 years old is quite remarkable. There's also a naive, innocent crapness to it all that would probably be bundled into the "outsider" artist tag with the likes of Daniel Johnson had the record been made now. There are parts that remind us of some of the MV+EE stuff too. The pic on the sleeve is great with its naff, proper 70's colours . Both Phil and I are feeling this one. That's cos were miserble... Oh the pain.
