Much has been written over the past 48 hours about the death of Jay Reatard and out of respect for those who knew him far longer than I did, I’m not gonna further add to the pile other than to suggest you read this entry from the Amoeba Records blog.

    Word on that, obviously. I’m kind of surprised at how sad this news made me. I was a fan, of course, but still… kind of hard to figure at this point, and I don’t want to psychoanalyze the dude, so I won’t. He was a big talent, though, and it’s sad for everyone who cares about good music that we’ll not to get to hear what new directions he was going to take that strange, anxious talent in.

    Certainly the best thing I’ve read about Jay since his death. Not sure I’ve ever known anyone who was so misunderstood.

    Not sure if he was buried with his Flying V but i do know he’s buried next to Issac Hayes.

    Good to see GC despite the shitty circumstances.
