I'm going to see Daniel Johnston in november. Not sure whether I'm looking forward to it or not. A wonderful, wonderful songwriter for sure but I just hope it doesn't turn into some kind of freak show. There's no beating some of the stuff he's produced over the past 20 years or so particularly the '1990' album which i'd urge everyone to hear at least once (hide all knives in drawers first). Anyway ...

I'm going to see Daniel Johnston in november. Not sure whether I'm looking forward to it or not. A wonderful, wonderful songwriter for sure but I just hope it doesn't turn into some kind of freak show. There's no beating some of the stuff he's produced over the past 20 years or so particularly the '1990' album which i'd urge everyone to hear at least once (hide all knives in drawers first). Anyway this is a new record called 'Is and Always Was'- his output has been scattershot over the past few years, albums contain a lot of filler but worth wading through for the odd inspired gem. This seems to be more of the same - a lovely delicate opener followed by the hideous 'Fake Records of Rock and Roll' followed by a song about a dog. Producer Jason Falkner has thankfully resisted the urge to put Daniel's tunes to slick production, so the whole thing has a lo-fi ramshackle feel that suits it perfectly. 'High Horse' is chirpy and contans a melody so infectious you want to leap around the room in glee. Marvelous stuff. But you should hear the song that follows it. Dear oh dear. So a mixed bag but essential for Johnston followers young and old.
