((Jay Reatard)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Memphis' Jay Reatard (former teenage founder of The Reatards and current member of Lost Sounds) plays furiously fun lo-fi no-wave punk (with a dash of rockabilly and garage thrown in, too). Phew! A whole mess of different past musical genres are covered when this guy takes the stage. But Reatard's sampling of these varied sounds really only leads to one singular goal; to make music you can thrash and dance to.

He plays and sings his short songs in a hurry, and it takes the savvy dancer/thrasher to keep up with his time signatures. Call it breathless-core. Jay Reatard will sure appeal to fans of The Ponys, Wire, Black Lips and Brian Eno.
