Visited six northern NJ supermarkets looking for Tapatio hot sauce, none of them had it. Go one town over and find it. Where? A BODEGA. The intro does not lie: Bodegas are our friend.

And I did try our town bodega, a little shop mere walking distance from my place that has lottery tix and a bevy of Mexican products. No deal. Then I remembered this other hole in the wall around the corner from a similarly teeny Mexican restaurant. Boom.

Steve! And, yeah, James, that was actually my introduction to him & his music
Avatar Wed. 11/18/15 7:16pm Rich in Washington:

One of my earliest memories of liking strange music was hearing 13th Floor Elevators' Fire Engine on the radio as a wee lad.
I am mighty excited about this show, Gary!
Avatar Wed. 11/18/15 7:17pm Gary:

Howdy, Rich -- might happy to see you!
Avatar Wed. 11/18/15 7:19pm Rich in Washington:

by weird coincidence, this track - and the song I just mentioned, Fire Engine, were among the first ever songs I ever downloaded off of Napster.
Avatar Wed. 11/18/15 7:19pm glenn:

it really wasn't that strange, except for the electric jug, which is just downright bizarre.
Avatar Wed. 11/18/15 7:22pm Gary:

Napster -- saw such a great documentary about Napster earlier this year

Rich, it's called "Downloaded," and I saw it on Netflix, and I'm pretty sure you can find it on YouTube at this point
Avatar Wed. 11/18/15 7:26pm Rich in Washington:

I just snagged it on Archive.org. Will watch it tonight. Thanks, Gary!

All three of tonight's featured artists have great documentaries.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/18/15 7:27pm cklequ:

That Jandek documentary was my first introduction to him. One of the big selling points in that film seemed to be that nobody really knew who he was. And almost as soon as the documentary was released he started playing out.
It sort of killed a little of the mystique.
Avatar Wed. 11/18/15 7:28pm Gary:

Cklequ! There's a new documentary coming out soon, I read
Avatar Wed. 11/18/15 7:28pm Rich in Washington:

I remember becoming somewhat aware of Jandek via Forced Exposure, just individual album reviews and then heard him on Weirdsville, a really cool, early internet stream.
I just thought it was a joke. I finally got hooked with the song Painted My Teeth.

ah, so it was the version from Casting The Runes. shoulda guessed. GREAT punky energy on that one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/18/15 8:00pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Roky documentary 'You're Gonna Miss Me' :
- of which I blurbed:
I've read 'Eye Mind' about The 13th Floor Elevators & all - so I was basically aware of these matters - but this film leaves me feeling gutted, & disoriented! Roky is surely one of Rawk's great talents - as both perhaps its' greatest vocalist & as a unique songwriter - & the way his struggle thru Middle Class American dysfunction & institutional terror interweaves thru his artistry is a tale w/ resonance & relevance like no other. A must-see & a heavy.

Before ZZ Top, Billy Gibbons was in Texas 60sPsych greats 'The Moving Sidewalks'.

Beautiful & haunting

Thanks for sharing the Rokymentary link, RRN63. I need to see that again. Such a sad and scary story. No wonder he wrote songs about vampires!

Avatar Wed. 11/18/15 8:17pm Rich in Washington:

I haven't listened to much Jandek after he entered his live performance era - not because I don't like it - just haven't. I hope his (relative) success and breaking his hermitage hasn't spoiled him too much.

seems like I saw some kind of video of some recent development with something jaw dropping in it but now for the life of me, can't remember what it was. Stupid internet, wrecking my brain.
Avatar    Wed. 11/18/15 8:22pm hyde:

i'm realizing that i somehow have never really listened to Jandek

I'm realizing the same thing.
Avatar Wed. 11/18/15 8:23pm Rich in Washington:

I think Jandek's just been a figment of our imagination..
Avatar Wed. 11/18/15 8:24pm Rich in Washington:

Isn't the Glasgow Sunday a recording of his surprise appearance, his first ever public performance?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/18/15 8:24pm steve:

Rich, jaw dropping good or jaw dropping bad? i was horrified by a fairly recent live vid of Jandek playing with a white-guy-funk band complete with slap bass.
