Although he's been writing songs since childhood, Daniel Johnston emerged publicly with his first cassette in 1981 at age twenty and proceeded to release a series of self-made and self-distributed cassettes including "Songs of Pain","Yip/Jump Music" and "Hi, How are You?". Since then he has written countless classic songs such as "Walking The Cow" "Speeding Motorcycle" "Casper The Friendly Ghost" "Funeral Girl" "Love Not Dead" and released many more albums including his latest, "Fear Yourself" on Gammon Records. Daniel Johnston is much loved in the music community and many of his fans, including Tom Waits, TV on the Radio, Vic Chesnutt, and Mercury Rev, participated in a recent tribute album called "The Late Great Daniel Johnston - Discovered, Covered" also on Gammon. Daniel has been drawing even longer than he's been writings songs. His drawings are poignant, haunt- ing, and funny and, like his songs, manage to raise universal questions on a very human scale. A new film directed by Jeff Feuerzeig, "The Devil and Daniel Johnston", will be screening at the Museum of Modern Art on March 30th and April 1st.
