Tuesday was the 5 year anniversary of the death of one of my musical heroes, Jay Reatard. When I discovered Jay, I discovered a musician who seemed to nearly breath music at the expense of everything else and I found someone with a dedication to making music that I truly admired. So this week’s show is completely Reatarded. The first half of the show is chronological, starting with his first band The Reatards and finishing with his final album as Jay Reatard. The second half of the show is all bands that had some connection to Jay Reatard in one way or another.
Jay Reatard – Oh, It’s Such a Shame
Jay Reatard – Blood Visions
Jay Reatard – In the Dark
Jay Reatard – Screaming Hand
Jay Reatard – Rotten Mind
