Default Daniel Johnston

I should've heard of this guy way before than a week ago but to make up for lost time I've been listening to a lot lately. He's a singer-songwriter but I'm not really sure if I'd go on about that for too long. I mean he's not a great musician. But he's fun! A lot of fun. Simple, obnoxious, weird. You know what music should always be about. It's not hard to believe that him and Violent Femmes are contempararies. They're not really similar but I hear the where it sounds pretty clear to me that they influenced each other. I'm certain that he lost a bunch of demos and John Darnielle found them and polished them up and spent 15 years rehashing it in a beautiful way.

He's awesome. M. Ward's cover of "To Go Home" is incredible.

Conor was so influenced by him in his early days, listening to Water, Special Treatment, A Collection of Songs and some of the stuff on Letting Off The Happiness. I just wanted to point that out.

I love Johnston so much. I can upload Fear Yourself if anyone wants it.

i can up the retired boxer cd later....but if you are just learning about daniel johnston now...a great place to start is the documentary about him if you don't already know about it...most blockbuster video stores seem to carry it...it's very good. check out the imdb so you know what to look for.

I saw that the other day on one of those indy-ish movie channels and it is really good. I knew that he was a tad different, but I never thought that he would be like that.
