Daniel Johnston

Critics' choice
Having suffered a nervous breakdown, chronic acid trip flashbacks and depression since the start of his career – when he started out by distributing cassettes to inhabitants of Austin, Texas, his hometown – Daniel Johnston is not only one of the most cultish but also perhaps the most precarious singer-songwriter of the American underground. His health has now improved, and with the pressures of being on a major label behind him, he brings his disarming, honest and tormented lo-fi songs to London. Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Matt Groening, Johnny Depp and Kurt Cobain have all raved about his genius, soo who are we to argue?
