Never miss another 'Jandek' show
Cry Parrot's Late Night Counterflows: Jandek + Kan Mikami + JD Twitch + Ghana Soundz
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.

Kan Mikami has been a singular figure in the Japanese underground since the early seventies performing his unique Japanese Blues.
“A fascinating and quite physical stage presence, he’s a curious mix of sweaty journeyman endeavour and flamboyant showmanship, switching easily from passionate, eyes-closed emoting to gurning leering invocations. His body tenses and uncoils in sympathy with the music, limbs curling and torso jerking laterally at irregular intervals, ducking away from and jolting back to the microphone... the magnetism of Mikami’s presence and the electricity of his performance amply convey the passion and emotion embedded in his songs, for all to see and hear.” Nick Cain reviewing Kan’s past performance at Café Oto for The Wire.
