Our first time seeing Jay Reatard live! 10 years ago today. We were disappointed because he only played for 30 minutes. And he called all of us in the audience “boring fucks”. The horror!
On a side note – there’s a YouTube poster Reatard Live who has recently compiled a bevy of Reatard-adjacent (solo, Reatards, Lost Sounds, Bad Times, etc) live videos. Thank you to Reatard Live for all of these viddies, which as you can imagine, we at KLYAM can not get enough of. Jay’s influence on KLYAM may, without exaggeration, be one of the most prevailing.
