Musician
    (May 23, 1952- )
    Possibly known as Sterling R. Smith
    Possibly resides in Houston, Texas
    Recorded 40+ albums, including 'Ready For the House (1978),' 'Six and Six (1981),' 'Interstellar Discussion (1984),' 'Graven Image (1994),' 'Worthless Recluse (2001),' and 'Khartoum (2005)'
    Runs his own record label, Corwood Industries
    His birthday is not really known.
    Barely anything is known about him, and he rarely appears in public.
    A magazine critic reviewing a Jandek release proclaimed 'May he never tune his guitar!'
    Jandek responded to that statement by revealing in an early Spin Magazine phone interview that he did have training and that he did tune his guitars in recordings (1985).
    That phone interview was his only interview ever as Jandek.
    The easiest way to get a Jandek album is to request a catalog through mail, and mail-order an item.
    Many of his album covers feature either an old picture of the same person (probably Jandek), a street, or a building (exterior and interior).
    He released his first album, 'Ready for the House' under an artist name 'The Units,' but nobody performed in the record but Jandek himself, and he never used that moniker again (1978).
    The Mayor of Houston, Texas proclaimed November 5, 2002 to be Jandek Day.
    He runs his own record label, Corwood Industries.
    He has a cult following that includes the late Nirvana singer, Kurt Cobain, and Sonic Youth member, Thurston Moore.
    He recorded 40+ albums.
    Starting in 2004, he began to perform live in public.
    He played in London, Glasgow, and in Austin Texas to a sold-out audience.
