"Everything I do is motivated by the fear of running out of time." - Jay Reatard.

3am, Jan. 2010, Jay Reatard was found dead in his new apartment. An autopsy result revealed that an overdose of cocaine mixed with alcohol was the factor. His death affected bands like Beck and The Pixies along with the indie community. He was 29; An unfortunate occurrence for a truly talented person. 

What I believe the context of ‘everything’ applied to was Jay Reatard’s music. And he recorded some amazing tracks that glow musical talent.

"No Time" is a truly emotional piece of his that defines his talent and defined what I also believe was his emotional state of the time.

His honest lyricism, his energetic sound, and his meticulously arranged compositions are indeed inspirational to me in a career and musical standpoint.

I wish I had met Jay. had a jam session with him. partied together (we have the same birthday). But nonetheless, his talented work will stay to inspire me and other future fans alike.

R.I.P. Jay Reatard. May 1, 1980 - January 13, 2010.
