Jay Reatard Twitters; Band Quits



From Twitter: "Band quit ! Fuck them ! They are boring rich kids who can't play for ahit anyways .. Say hello to your ugly and boring wifes opps I mean lifes guys suck it"

Yep, after the first leg of the Shattered Records Tour, Jay Reatard's valiant rhythm section — Stephen Pope and Billy Hayes — have apparently walked. After a brief hiatus, the tour picks back up in Seattle next Thursday, and continues down the West Coast and to Europe through mid-November. No word yet on who will be filling in.
