“The longest-running, weirdest, loneliest enigma in popular music is a guy from Texas who calls
himself Jandek." So begins a 1997 Boston Phoenix article by Douglas Wolk. From the bluesy, atonal
music and haunting lyrics, to the artist’s steadfast seclusion and sheer longevity, everything about this
man intrigues. Twenty-five years, 34 albums, and not a single live show or public appearance. Even the
simple detail of the man's real name is a mystery.
Jandek on Corwood is the 89-minute documentary that explores this man, his world and his music.
