Truly sad news today for the music world at large, as rock ‘n’ roll mainstay Jay Reatard was found dead this morning at his Memphis home. Reatard was renowned for his balls-to-the-wall attitude and was notorious for his onstage antics and inability to budge even a step when it came to what he wanted. His music was as brash as his outlook on life, and we here at Light In The Attic are certainly going to miss the gritty punches he and his music brought to our daily lives.
Reatard had recently released his Matador debut to critical acclaim.
It’s a sad day indeed.
