DANIEL JOHNSTON

(Drawings by Daniel Johnston)

On the weekend I discovered a film which I am planning on seeing very soon, Its called The devil and Daniel Johnston…From the short preview I saw it looks like a good independant film about a man who draws great album artwork, loves mountain dew, goes through stages of being obsessed with the devil, has spent a lot of his life in a mental hospital…just the usual and all tied together into a film with a backing track of his strange but quite amazing collection of songs.

I listened to some of his songs on youtube and its hard to explain what i’m saying but underneath the quirky lyrics you can hear the bitter atmosphere inspired from the places he was living (mental hospital) and from the tone of his voice you get the impression that he has lost it.

A line from the mountain dew song ‘we have nothing better to do but drink mountain dew’
