I finally sat down and watched The Devil and Daniel Johnston last night and it left me with a head full of his songs. I can't recommend the film enough to everyone. It's painful to watch sometimes but I think it helps bring you into Daniel's world. I've embedded it below for those who haven't seen it. (thanks to Best Free Documentaries) I went on a search for Daniel Johnston covers and collected a few for you here. The band "P" was fronted by Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers on vocals and Johnny Depp on guitar/bass.

It has just come to my attention that not everyone has seen this hilarious video. When I heard Liam Lynch was creating podcasts a few years ago I immediately set to work downloading them all. I loved his show Sifl and Olly and couldn't wait to see what he was up to now. The podcasts were filled with silly animations, interviews and even a few appearances from Sifl and Olly. This is a clip from one of those podcasts with Dan Deacon providing the audio.
