Did Somebody Here Order The Jandek?


Coming up in the 2 o'clock hour we have a little something we call the SOUNDS OF INSOMNIA: The Music of Jandek. Long time Shuffle Function listeners are familiar with this mystery man, but if you are new to the world of Jandek - there are some rules of the road that we should go over.

RULE #1) Turn off the lights. This is key to getting to setting the correct tone of the evening.

RULE #2) Some Jandek fans suggest listening to him in the bathtub in a candle lit room. I haven't tried this so I can't speak from experience with this rule. Try it out. Let us know if it enhances the music at all.

RULE #3) Repeat to yourself that everything will be okay. YES, Jandek's music can be disturbing, stark, challenging - but we do know that he has social interactions. He isn't always solo - so he can't be truly frightening. Just repeat "Everything is okay" - and you'll be allright.

RULE #4) If Jandek scares you, you can call 389 - 5678. We will reassure you, and take your pledge too.

RULE #5) Whisper.

See you at 2 a.m.!!
