What's This?

There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t play at least one Jay Reatard song. I don’t care which, they all help me get through my humdrum lifestyle.  The Richmond, Virginia based label Robotic Empire has plans to release a tribute vinyl to Nirvana, as well as plans to celebrate their 15th-year anniversary as a label and their 100th release with covers from bands like Ceremony, Daughters, Mean Jeans, Whirr, and more. It’s only fitting that Jay’s cover of “Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle” would be included. Now remastered, the cover was one of Jay’s final recordings. Jay gives this cover it’s own touch with his paranoia-filled vocals, his signature fuzzy guitar squalls out frantic rhythms. Of course, he does the song justice. The record can be pre-ordered on iTunes and will be released on vinyl format Record Store Day (April 19th).
