Today’s best bit of music-related news comes, via Pitchfork, from Jay Reatard, who took to his Twitter this morning to announce that his backing band had deserted him, just a week before scheduled tours of the U.S. and Europe. A dick move, for sure, but given this particular tweet, I can’t imagine I’d want to ride around in a bus with dude either.
Band quit! Fuck them! They are boring rich kids who can’t play for ahit [sic] anyways … Say hello to your ugly and boring wifes opps I mean lifes guys suck it.”
So there you have it. Jay Reatard: bad at typing, bad at spelling and maybe sort of a jerk.
