Jandek

Jandek is the musical project of an anonymous outsider musician who operates out of Houston, Texas. Since 1978, Jandek has self-released over 60albums of unusual, often emotionally dissolute folk and blues songs without ever granting more than the occasional interview or providing anybiographical information. Jandek often plays a highly idiosyncratic and frequently atonal form of folk and blues music, often using an open andunconventional chord structure. Jandek's music is unique, but the lyrics closely mirror the country blues and folk traditions of East Texas. The name"Jandek" is most commonly used to refer specifically to the main—often sole—performer, rather than to the project.
