Love Of Life Orchestra

peter gordon and his love of life orchestra are testament to the incredible musical innovations happening in new york city in the late 1970s. those two compositions, underpinned with disco and gilded with noisy guitar bursts, hanging piano chords and saxophone wails, exhibit not only gordon's kaleidoscopic vision as a musician, but his precision as a producer and composer.

Jandek - Covers (1978 – 2016)

only a handful of people claimed to have successfully contacted jandek before he began regularly playing in public in 2004. he releases albums through his own record label corwood industries, keeping a houston post office box so fans can write to corwood for a typewritten catalogue and order jandek’s albums, usually at low prices. many of his albums feature photos of a caucasian man at various ages; although it seemed likely that this man was the principal performer, this presumption was not certain until his live debut in 2004.
