No, Jay Reatard is far from being a retard. He’s quite brilliant actually, as far as Memphis garage-punk goes.
The video bellow is for “See/Saw,” the first A-Side in the Matador Singles ’08 series, and, as incredible as it might sound, this is really Jay’s first ever music video. We trust Matador Records enough to take their word for it.
Wild, frantic, energetic. Each and all of these at one place can describe both the video and the song itself. It features Jay and all his ‘reatarded’ friends rocking out in a shopping cart. Rock on!
