The Late great DAniEL JohNsTon

Did not find a thread for this cult artist so decided to create one. Daniel was truly a genius songwriter but sadly he also had a lot of mental problems. If you listen to his recording they may sound crude and underdeveloped but the raw emotion and simplicity in his delivery its utterly brutal. It send shivers down your spine. Kurt Cobain was a big fan of his and famously wore a shirt of one of his albums



Anyways I have found myself revisiting his work and its quite wonderful. I understand if its not your cup of tea but if its quite fascinating

There was a documentary made of him on 2005 which I highly recommend, here is the trailer



And here are a couple of songs

I never got him. I was a huge Nirvana fan so I jumped on it when I found out about him and it is not for me.
