The Reatards in Europe 1999

We’ve mentioned a few times on here this year that Goner would be reissuing The Reatards’ Teenage Hate record this year and it’s finally out there. The 2xLP version comes with an extra LP of rarities and early 4-track recordings, Fuck Elvis Here’s The Reatards, that include sessions with Greg Oblivian on drums — that alone is worth your hard-earned dollar. If you’ve never heard this record or had the opportunity to pick up a physical copy, we’d really like to encourage you to snag it now. It provides a glimpse of a young, angry, bratty, hate-filled Jay Reatard that we’re all missing these days. We came across some photos from The Reatards’ 1999 European Tour [like the one above] on this flickr, and we posted some more of them below. Click down there if you wanna check out the rest. And listen to one of our favorite Reatards tracks from the Plastic Surgery 7″.
