It was less than two months ago that I scrawled down a short piece on the phenomenon of Jay Reatard, the garage rock genius and/or charlatan who came from Memphis and swept the nation. Pitchfork is reporting this afternoon that Reatard died last night at 29. Ever the entertainer, he'll be missed, as will so many other musicians (like Vic Chesnutt) who have met untimely deaths recently.
