i know a place

in an earlier post I mentioned a new Jay Reatard 7″ called “I Know A Place.” this “semi-acoustic pop single” is a something of a change of pace for the memphis based punk/new waver. the b-side is a terrific cover of The Go-Betweens.

but the a-side….. the a-side….. this is a song so catchy that you’ll do a double take and be all like “i KNOW i’ve heard this before!” it sounds like shit from some seminal underground band like The Clean. but it’s not. it’s new shit. it’s good old jay reatard. i can’t wait until he plays a show in los angeles. i have to say he’s among my very favorites right now.

through the magic of the internet, i stumbled across a really nice rip of the single and wanted to share the a-side with those of you who are phonographically challenged. get ready for two minutes and nine seconds of pure lo-fi bliss.

PLAY THIS SONG TEN TIMES IN A ROW AND PLAY IT LOUD!

so…i guess we now know what would have happened if Joel Goodsen (Tom Cruise) had joined Carrie (Sissy Spacek) at the prom…

am not much for political correctness but i’d like it better if he’d change his name
