Watch the New Jay Reatard Documentary: Waiting for Something

This documentary should not surprise anyone. For those who have been ill informed, Jay Reatard has been cranking out some of the best punk rock for 10 years straight, so it’s about time he got something proper lick this. Enjoy the smorgasbord of early performances, Reatard being quiet, and people awkwardly trying to compare Reatard to Elvis just because they’re both from Memphis. But hey, people compare Titus Andronicus to Bruce Springsteen just because they’re both from New Jersey, so it’s not that odd.
