Just bought all his stuff. Thanks. Not sure how I've missed him this long.
@BertrandRustles Isn't it gorgeous, Bertie? Such fragile beauty. I discovered him quite late, too, thanks to Uncut magazine. Not heard this song until it was played on my timeline. Love.
@BertrandRustles Could also recommend the documentary, The Devil & Daniel Johnston. x
@rejunevated Yep, I'm on it x
@BertrandRustles Also, laughing at "just bought all his stuff." No half measures, eh? Shall I try one album & see if I like it? No, I'll just buy all his stuff! ;) x
@rejunevated I don't believe in fucking about :) Plus, I'm a collector by nature so...
@BertrandRustles yeah @rejunevated is right awesome documentary
@BertrandRustles I like your style & hope you enjoy it all. Yes, @Isajward9, it's a while since I've seen the documentary but it was very affecting. I must watch it again soon.
I've got a collection of Daniel Johnson tunes. Perculiar guy, isn't he? haha! Really like his distinctive style, though.
Love him. xxx
@BertrandRustles i envy you just discovering him haha he's one of my all-time faves... especially his early work up to about '94. J Boxer (my musical alias) is actually a reference to his "Joe the Boxer" character, who appears not only in his comics but a few of his songs as well
@JBoxer It makes no sense that I've not heard him before. I don't understand it. Just one of those artist that fell through the cracks.
@rejunevated @isajward9 I loved the documentary. Fascinating and moving.
@debutch Yes, I've not heard all his stuff by any means & I think I need to seek out more. I'm always scared for him because of his frailty but it makes his songs more precious.
@KerryEJordan Me too, Kerry. We have very similar tastes.
@JBoxer Ah, thanks for that. Very interesting
@BertrandRustles I'm really glad you enjoyed it. I was going to ask you today, & yes, so moving & fascinating. I think his fragility makes you treasure his work more. Thanks to your enthusiasm, I'd now like "all his stuff" too. I'm on the case. x
@rejunevated There's not that much in truth. a few albums. I'll get the books and comics next :) x
@BertrandRustles Exciting times. :D x
Great jam, really enjoyed it, nice pick.
