Jandek - Six and Six lp (Corwood/Jackpot)


Second Jandek from 1981.

"Originally released in 1981, following a three year gap between the release of debut LP “Ready For The House”, Jandek’s second album “Six And Six” stands as an incredible document of the formative stages of his cracked genius. Following the astonishingly bleak tone of the first LP, the musical elements are almost catatonic. 9 songs drift by as a series of slight variations on several desolate, untuned acoustic guitar phrases. The meditative, steady music forms a dark backdrop for some of Jandek’s more vivid and poetic lyrical thoughts. Universal doom, loner dirges and sea-themed ruminations are all present. This is far and away the core of what was to come, in it’s most succinct and coincidentally most haunted form. This album was also the first to incorporate an image of Jandek on the cover, both giving a face to the sounds and hinting at what would become a prolific series of incredible, disturbed albums.

Vinyl for this album has been unavailable since the initial pressing ran out, and has been sought ravenously by collectors ever since. Working in direct collaboration with Corwood Industries, we’re thrilled to offer this exact repress, heavyweight-vinyl edition. An astonishingly ghostly album, unlike anything else and also unique to this particular phase in Jandek’s evolution, “Six And Six” is a crucial piece of the puzzle that we can only hope never gets solved completely" - JACKPOT RECORDS
