Some things last a long time.


A few years ago, I watched ‘The Devil And Daniel Johnston’. It was one of the most interesting and inspiring music documentary films I’ve had the pleasure to watch. In its wake, I have been left with an enduring love and appreciation for Daniel’s music and personality.

Linked below is a recording of Daniel calling into a WFMU radio show featuring Yo La Tengo to sing his song [which they had covered] ‘Speeding Motorcycle’. I’ve also included one of my favourites tracks he has released – ‘Some things last a long time’ from the album ‘1990’.

You can find out more about Daniel from his website –
