Jay Reatard: RIP

Posted By on Wed, Jan 13, 2010 at 3:23 PM

We've received word that Jay "Reatard" Lindsey died in his sleep this morning. He was 29.

Inspired by Memphis trash rockers The Oblivians Lindsey started playing raw garage punk rock and roll when he was 15. His first recordings with The Reatards were released by Eric "Oblivion" Friedl on his Goner record label. The temperamental musician went on to play in The Lost Sounds, and The Final Solutions before signing to Matador Records in 2008.

Details to come.
