R.I.P. Jay Reatard
Tribute this weekend, probably.
Too much homework to take the time to write a bunch of stuff, sorry. Maybe in a few months when the tragedy has sunk deeper into our consciousness. Jay was one of the most talented artists to release music in my lifetime and his body of work will continue to serve as an inspiration to me, as it has for the three years I've spent worshipping at its altar. The Hipinion thread about his death is an embarrassment and Chris Ott is a colossal wiener.
Just listen to the records.
