FAVORITE (0 fans)


Jandek is the musical project of an anonymous outsider musician who operates out of Houston, Texas. Since 1978, Jandek has self-released over 60 albums of unusual, often emotionally dissolute folk and blues songs without ever granting more than the occasional interview or providing any biographical information. Jandek often plays a highly idiosyncratic and frequently atonal form of folk and blues music, often using an open and unconventional 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. more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Said goodbye, San Francisco
Got to go, Arizona 
Said why'd you leave me, Denver 
I don't even have a chance 

Guess Ohio's got my number 
Rhode Island's got my name 
Snap, the wood makes you dance 
The music's in its chamber 

The door is locked and sealed 
The weight is on your shoulders 
The past is at your heel 
Guess the plight is in your fancy 

When you rip out though the door 
The rest is how you feel 
We're not gonna take it out to the farm, lest you leave 
The rest is how you make it 

Gentle as the sun come up in the mornin'
As the moon goes out this evenin'
Open the shade 
The night time's gone away 

You'll have my love if you say 
I dreamed a fellow took your arm 
Led you to his [unknown] 
I woke up shattered in the night 

Frozen feelings up on their way 
A shaking hand in me today 
I left the San Francisco Bay 
I dreamed a dream that wasn't right
