I’d rather be dead than cool…

The last mix the Tin Man put on here sparked up something interesting… well he played some Nirvana right after Beck.  The Nirvana song was “Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle.”  Then I remembered Jay Reatard did an awesome cover to that on an In Utero tribute album… again, cool because SPIN just released a rad Nevermind tribute album because of the 20th anniversary.

Love that psyched out version… only found out about him because he died a day before my birthday last year, which is a shame because this reatard could rock.

Then I saw he did a split 7″ for Beck’s “Gamma Ray” off the Modern Guilt LP…

Here’s Becks version…

…and is that Chloë Sevigny?!  After seeing her chilling in her bedroom listening to the Beastie Boys with Rosario Dawson in the movie Kids, she’s been my dream girl since middle school.  Then I guess she beat AIDS because she went on to be in some more of my favorite movies like American Psycho and Zodiac …damn is she always in fucked up movies?

Anyways, after checking out that the raw documentary on A Tribe Called Quest, I can’t wait to check out this one on Jay’s life…

He was out of Memphis, TN, and because his voice reminds me of Jack White’s who just set up shop with Third Man Records out of Nashville, TN, here’s another favorite from back in the day with “Fell In Love With A Girl,” directed by Michel Gondry.

…and just because I can’t get enough of that Charles Bradley cover to “Stay Away,” here’s a mean Menahan Street Band version…

Both Charles and the Band are insane live… don’t hesitate if they come through your town.
