WHAT. THE. FUCK. pour one out 4 tha homiez, Jay Reatard has passed on. Watch Me Fall indeed.

Jay Reatard was right, it ain’t gonna save him… no word on the cause of death yet, but what a god damn shame… he was only 29 and everyone and their mother is guessing overdose. at least for someone so young, he left behind a surmountable volume of music. pour one out 4 tha homiez, y’all… what a blow to the indie world. (*update – couple touching-ish tributes from Los Angelenos – Beck here with Jay’s cover of Gamma Ray – and Amoeba Records with a tribute here and photos from his Hollywood Amoeba show here.)
