Jay Reatard (1980 - 2010) ...an update
For those of you who missed it Jay Reatard passed away the other day. He was 29. For those of you who've never heard of him check out either of his albums, Blood Visions (2006) or Watch Me Fall (2009)
In an update, Memphis Police are investigating his death as homocide and are searching for a possible suspect. It all seems really fucked up.
You can read reactions from some musicians including The Pixies and Ted Leo on Pitchfork.com
Here's a cover of Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle by Nirvana (there's a link to the original)
