Published on the occasion of the Jandek exhibition (June 6 - July 24, 2008) and performance (June 13, 2008) at the Douglas Hyde Gallery. Includes texts, The Rocks Crumble, by John Hutchinson, The Hunger Artist, Jandek in Performance, by Lars Iyer, and complete Jandek album covers from 1978 - 2008.
From a person very dear to the glaswegian heart: this book compiles all of JANDEK's album covers from 1978 until 2008, a document of highest historical significance and some might remember the Representative from Corwood Industries played his first ever live show here back in 2004! It's another "Glasgow Friday" and this is, alongside Bill Eggleston, the source of all the amateur-style photography that took over the record & book sleeves throughout the universe for the last few decades. Forget Slint, forget Sub Pop, this is the voice of realness as channelled from deep down the well of the spheres! "Highest possible recommendation"!
