i am also sad about jay's death, because he was the reason why i came to garage music...
it's a bummer that after the "watch me fall" lp nothing will follow (still don't have the record but nearly every other record he released as jay reatard).
but i would never grieve mourn the death of jay in respect of his character  :-\

for the german fans here's a still unreleased interview with him from ox-fanzine:

What a bummer! I have been reading about Jay and have only just made friends with him on myspace. All these talented people dying young is so sad. Well anyone dying young is sad of course.

Finally bought Jay's last album, 'Watch Me Fall' earlier this week - just after the anniversary of his death. I've listened to various Reatard tracks on youtube which I've enjoyed but I didn't realise just how much his sound was like the Adverts - this album really sounds to me like the missing link between Red Sea and Cast; the Pickup-esque guitar, the sudden changes in pace, his vocals, the cluttering drum sound it's all there... I can certainly see why he wanted to collaborate with TV and it's a great shame it never came about.

I will have to check it out Alan. Apart from the Adverts comparisons what is your opinion on the album?

It's a really good album and a bit of a grower; I bought it on e-bay for under 7 with postage so a bit of a bargain too!

Yep I had it in the car yesterday going to Macclesfield and back and it certainly helped fill the time!
