One of the weirdest and most alternative performers you will ever run across is a guy who goes by the name Jandek. His real name (we think) is Sterling Richard Smith, a dude who operates out of Houston, releasing strange indie records on his own Corwood Industries label. For years, we knew nothing about this guy—and I mean NOTHING—except that he had this thing for releasing odd atonal and almost unlistenable music. And a lot of it, too. He’s still at it, so if you’re looking for an alternative to the alternative, go with Jandek. You won’t be able to go much further.
