Goner to release Jay Reatard's early works

Post Author:
Jay Reatard, <i>Teenage Hate</i>

Jay Reatard recorded a mountain of material before many people outside of Memphis had heard of him. It all adds up to a precocious fully-flushed out oeuvre that ends in the polished production he put out for his final full-length on Matador. (Just try and hold your breath through a full scroll of his complete works on Wikipedia.)

Goner's packaged up his earliest LP, Teenage Hate, and tacked on tracks that were only previously available on his Fuck Elvis Here's the Reatards cassette. The result is 39 of his earliest scruffy homemade covers and originals, available May 31, here.
