Jay Reatard’s first full-length LP Teenage Hate, first released in 1998, is set for a deluxe reissue on May 31 on Goner Records. This Jay Reatard posthumous double album will include early tracks (Fuck Elvis Here’s the Reatards) recorded by Jay on 4-track and only previously released on cassette. Some songs feature Greg Cartwright (Reigning Sound, Oblivians) on drums. The double album features Reatards covers of Fear, The Dead Boys, Lil Bunnies, Buddy Holly, Johnny Vomit & The Dry Heaves, and The Beatles. Teenage Hate/Fuck Elvis Here’s the Reatards offers a glimpse into the punk energy and rapidly developing raw talent of a teenage Jay Reatard.
