Description: This portrait of indie-rock artist Jandek explores the performer's career -- from his bluesy, atonal music and haunting lyrics to the his steadfast seclusion and sheer longevity. Twenty-five years, 34 albums, and not a single live show or public appearance. Even the simple detail of his real name is a mystery. Jandek released his first album, 'Ready for the House,' in 1978 on his own record label, Corwood Industries (he is, of course, the only artist on this label). The release went relatively overlooked until a review by Phil Milstein appeared in Op magazine in 1980. Bolstered by that slight measure of notice, Jandek set about releasing at least one album per year over the next quarter century, all featuring his unique brand of cacophonous rock and suicide-note blues.
