FRONT’s feeling pretty fucking shitty this morning after we heard that all-round amazing dude and kick-ass music-maker Jay Reatard died yesterday, at just 29. A previous winner of the prestigious FRONT Album of the Month award for the shit-hot-brilliant Watch Me Fall, we’re gonna miss his pocket-sized tunes and ace videos, like the one above.
He taught us everything we know…
We’re not scared of change here at FRONT – we put new kecks on every other week, or so, after all – so we’ve decided to go all web 2.0 and join the world of “tweets” (that’s what the kidz are calling them, yeah?) with the FRONT magazine Twitter.
Make sure you’re following us there to get updates on all things FRONT, links to exclusive content and the odd average joke that, if you like, we’ll no doubt shamelessly recycle in the mag at some point.
Cop yourself a load of the 140-character randomness over ‘ere, innit.
You’re a big fan of tattoos, we see: “I certainly am. I have a big cherry blossom back piece that continues over my hip and down my right leg. It’s well special. I also have my bellybutton pierced and a dermal anchor by my right eye.”
What’s your favourite ever album: “Trompe Le Monde, by Pixies”
Booze of choice: “Amaretto. Straight, of course.”
Get your mitts on the Fly53 sale. Knockdown knitwear to wrap up warm. Sorry for the puns.
If you’re around in London on the 6th of February, make sure you check out the amazing lineup that Radio 1 dubstep champion Annie Mac has put together for the latest installment of her badass ‘Annie Mac Presents…’ nights. Grime hero Wiley and new-school drum and bass man Sub Focus head up the list of acts on the bill, and of course ace Annie herself will be manning the decks as well.
