Corwood Variations, The [coll] – [Corwood Industries]

The ever elusive Texan, Sterling Richard Smith (better known as Jandek), started recording in 1978 and has some 50 albums under his belt, but has only given two interviews in that time, and didn???t perform live until 2004. With such mystery surrounding him, he has garnered quite a cult following. Enter Eric Schlittler of Summersteps Records, who has released 3 Jandek tribute CD???s, including this one, ???The Corwood Variations???, which is meant as a companion (not as a third volume) to the first two, as these are leftovers and outtakes. Personally, I think this is the best of the three releases, with some real gems to be found.

Not to be missed is the four part suite that is ???Painted My Teeth??? (#18) . Part sampling and part live performance, it is simply brilliant in its incongruousness and sense of humor.

Other standout tracks: 1, 2, 5, 6, 9, 10, 19, 23.

ALL CLEAN.
