Published Apr 15, 2008As Jay Reatard told us, he loves Canada, and Canada loves him back. The new Matador Records signee crosses the border into our home and native land tomorrow when he kicks off his three-date headlining tour of Canada in Ottawa, before moving on to Toronto and Montreal.
To get everyone excited about his explosive, face-kicking gigs, Exclaim! has been given an exclusive new track from a forthcoming seven-inch Jay will release through Matador in the coming months. "Always Wanting More" demonstrates that Jay can throw in an acoustic and a tambourine to make something less volatile than his standard garage punk explosions. The result comes off sounding like a muscular take on a Cheap Trick ditty.
