Watch Jay Reatard Documentary Waiting For Something

Watch Jay Reatard Documentary Waiting For Something

If you ever wanted to know more about Joe’s favorite musician, Alex Hammond and Ian Markiewicz’s 20-minute Waiting For Something is a good place to start. Reatard offers thoughts on vinyl and his “weird” food cravings. Various Memphis locals give anecdotes about his early days. You also get a slew of live footage. One thing: It’s kinda odd that folks go out of their way to evoke Reatard and Elvis in the same breath on multiple occasions. One other thing: To these eyes/ears, Jay often awkwardly tries too hard to sound like an outsider or a martyr. (But hey, look closely and you’ll spot a great Strapping Fieldhands t-shirt.)

Watch Me Fall is out 8/18 via Matador. This song’s on it:

Jay Reatard – “It Ain’t Gonna Save Me” (MP3)
