Band quit ! Fuck them ! They are boring rich kids who can't play for ahit anyways .. Say hello to your ugly and boring wifes opps I mean ..." - Jay Reatard

Jay Reatard's bass player @ LPR (more by Jake Forney)
Jay Reatard

When asked about past Tweets, Jay said people needed to get a sense of humor and not take them so seriously. Assuming Jay's above-quoted Tweet is actually true, that means no more crazy-looking bass player guy (!)... who actually admits he can't play for shit in the short Jay Reatard documentary which you can watch at the bottom of our recent interview. It also means that the recent show at Le Poisson Rouge was one of Jay's last with his band. Jay's next scheduled show is October 15th in Seattle.

I think this is all just a way to get us to check out his new backing band, Zach Hill on drums and Flea on bass.

wow steven got skinny. good for him. fuck jay lindsey. shows what a POS he is. Your band quits? deal with them- not their family members who could give a fuck about you. who the fuck would even want to be around someone like that.

I love how the comments are actually more interesting that the posts on BV ... like, 3:00 was really funny :)

Beat up your audience, treat people like shit and what do you expect. Why would anyone spend money on such negativity?

Waste of time

Sorry to burst your bubble, but that was the reformed The Reatards that played Goner Fest 6. Stephen Pope and Billy Hayes who tour with Jay regularly don’t seem to have quit the band. Research anyone?

I saw jay reatard at a local falafel stand, and he requested them to "hold the hummus"
-Does it get any whacker then that?!

Posted by Anonymous | October 6, 2009 4:07 PM

who cares. Jay is great. bass player and drummer quit? get another bass player and drummer. it's jay's band.

Posted by Anonymous | October 6, 2009 4:26 PM

"hummus" is the new "meh" which was the new "when does Daft Punk"... Gotta love BV!

JAY REATARD > BROOKLYN BANDS

Posted by public school whitey | October 6, 2009 5:32 PM

this is easy to see what happn.... jay gets popular.... his retareded looking band members one fat and one ugly finally find someone to fuck them....all of the sudden they are in love, someone understands!...and now that they have balls and confidence again, they stand up to the prick bandmember who just likes to control them

Posted by Anonymous | October 6, 2009 6:34 PM

well actually it's more complicated than that, as the "someone to fuck them" was closeted ole' Jay Reatard, and the reason for this split is almost certainty romantic

Posted by Anonymous | October 6, 2009 6:48 PM

Jay is a total princess. His bandmates could play well enough and were pretty funny dudes...seems like most people on this site seem to side with the ex bandmates...guess that says something about good ol' Jay.

Who's a big fat fuck?

Posted by Anonymous | October 6, 2009 9:27 PM

looks like the inner-band romance ended

So who wants to see just how terrible it is to play in my band . I mean its so so hard I promise its the worst :) Jayreatard@gmail.com

to 12:35. at least jay is being honest.

Stephen Pope was also the tour manager. Let's see Jay blow all his tour money....

Posted by Anonymous | October 7, 2009 9:58 AM

Jay is really mean to his band. He's a raging drug addict. I've read that he hits girls. what a fuck face. somebody should take this guy OUT.

Posted by asshole | October 7, 2009 5:17 PM

wait wait wait hold on, none of this is relevant if it's true, so wait, are they boring rich kids? do they have ugly and boring wives?

i bet they do...

Posted by Anonymous | October 7, 2009 7:14 PM
