Jay Reatard Celebrated on New Reissue

leave a comment »

Memphis-born musician Jimmy Lee Lindsey, Jr., better known as Jay Reatard, gained a considerable cult following with his brand of all-over-the-place garage-rock. Though Reatard died last January at the too-young age of 29, he left a pretty long musical legacy, not only as a solo act but through his early bands, The Reatards and The Lost Souls.

Reatard’s original label, Goner Records, announced in January plans to reissue some of those early recordings, and now news has broke that one of Reatard’s earliest recordings – released under the band name of The Reatards, but primarily self-recorded – will be reissued on May 17. The Teenage Hate album will be paired with a rare, self-released album first released on cassette called F*** Elvis Here’s The Reatards, a 39-track affair when all is said and done.

Order your copy on Amazon and find the usual track list after the jump.
