JAY REATARD - Blood visions
Sello: Fat Possum
“Blood Visions” is an album of frenetic indie-punk that basically sounds like a cross between Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers and Supergrass, if you can imagine such a thing. Jay Reatard’s anglicised voice adds the Supergrass element. Reatard plays everything himself other than a couple of tracks where bass duties are handed to Alix Brown. The songs are without exception very catchy and full on. Highlights include “Blood Vsions”, “Not A Substitute”, “I Saw You Standing There” and “Oh, It’s Such A Shame”.
