Editorial Reviews

Another live disc. According to the spine, the name of the album is Glasgow Monday. But the name of the composition it contains is The Cell; this is printed above the track listing. The credit on the back says RECORDED LIVE: CENTER FOR CONTEMPORARY ARTS GLASGOW SCOTLAND MAY 23, 2005. Jandek plays piano throughout and sings; he is accompanied by Richard Youngs (bowed upright bass) and Alexander Neilson (percussion), both uncredited.

Special Features

None.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying I am by no means an expert on Jandek. I do own several of his cd's (for those who are interested they are: Ready For The House, Six And Six, Chair Beside A Window, Blue Corpse, You Walk Alone, and the DVD Glasgow Sunday - not to be confused with my review here for Glasgow Monday), and I generally like all of them. I think I expected too much from this DVD - especially when I read that there would be a drummer and a person playing upright bass, and Jandek playing piano... I was hoping for some weird experimental jazz - but that is not what this is at all... Now in all fairness to Jandek he just had different intentions for this piece and I respect him for that - but I find this to be unbearably repetitive and very uninteresting. Now any Jandek fan will immediately say that all of his recordings are repetitive - many entire albums contain the same guitar chords and same vocal style throughout - but oddly enough I am OK with that as the ones I have heard I actually find interesting - while this DVD leaves me completely empty. To describe the piano playing I could say it is like hearing a child play variations of the same scale over and over and over and over. Jandek does not sing but rather recites his poetry; the string bass player does not play in any free-form unconventional style but rather plays very nice-sounding slow low accompaning notes - many times actually in tune with Jandek's piano playing (!!), and the drummer barely ever hits a drum with a stick but rather experiments with other odd sounds that a drum kit can make - and I do find that interesting - but it is Jandek's repetitive simple-scale piano playing and dull uninspired delivery of his poetry that leaves me bored and uninterested.Read more ›
