Who Ya Callin' a Reatard?

Waiting For Something - a short documentary about Jay Reatard

If you've been asking yourself, "Who is this Jay Reatard dude and what the fuck is up with his name?" the above mini-movie oughta fill you in.

Waiting for Something is a 20-minute documentary about Reatard, his music and the people around him who try to explain the guy and his rapid-fire garage-punk.

At the end of it all, you may not have a tight grip on the guy, but you will get a sense of his ferocious live shows. It should also prep you for Reatard's monster new album, Watch Me Fall, which comes out in a couple weeks. —Michael Gallucci
