Jay Reatard would beat the LIVING SH!T out of all of you if he were alive to read this.
Rest in peace Jay, you left behind some fantastic music. I hope you’re up there still jammin out looking down on us poor sods who can’t get over the controversy and unfairness of dying young. “don’t get me started?that’s just retarded?” You’re songs were all gold.
He kinda looks like Mick Jagger in that shot.
This guy RULES. I realize there will be posts following this saying otherwise, but for a manic musician he’s the most brutally honest heart on his sleeve guy out there. Just sayin’.
they are really great. that’s all i have to say! i am looking forward to this release…especially since it’s on vinyl.
will this have anything to do with the novel by john updike? or is the title just a rip off? ps i suggest reading the novel. that may be time better spent. that’s just me though and my damned opinion again
exactly. wtf ever.
nonetheless, mr. reatard may still have a point.
i’m now going to follow him on twitter for more future outbursts. those are always fun.
Allow me then to clarify my opinion (note: opinion) in Proper English Words: I think Sigur Ros sucks. I heard them open for Bjork who sings beautifully in Icelandic, but really, this band? *yawn* OK…next!
*usually by a man on lexington ave in nyc who has pirated copies of cds for sale on top of a piece of cardboard.*
Help! I’m watching 2 Sigor Ros Videos at once! It’s twice as annoying. They’re only appealing to me if 1. I suddenly understand Icelandic 2. wish to levitate 3. have a hangover and must have music on.
