Memphis has lost Jay and his talent way too soon--he will be missed!

@pitch30320 Well he's certainly using reverb on his voice, but I don't think his guitar is using it at all, that's just a good acoustic recorded nicely :)

@stainypoo To me it sounds like a delay pedal with the feedback turned all the way up

You get used to it, becomes interesting when you're bored I guess. Thanks man, I wish you best as well, and good luck with your situation.

Any one catch the chords he's playing?

@0mnib0t He's not using reverb on his voice, he's using delay, slapback style. Similar effect.

Reminds me of the earlier music of the violent femmes says mid 80's.

Well, it may be bland in your opinion, but that's what makes music so thoroughly fascinating, that everybody has their own taste. Jay wasn't overly hyped, he was just great. Over 100 singles, two completely different full length albums proved that.

Somebody should put this and the pitchfork cake shop show on an LP, I would buy that shit up so quick

@stainypoo Reverb. Its probably something different and more expensive but you could totally get that with digital reverb.

Jay sounds great unplugged! I love how creepy the vocals sound with the delay/reverb effect.

@valentinecochran I know it's some kinda delay/reverb thing but it's a pedal or a effect box i believe and I'm wondering which kind it is, especially in some other songs he get the "megaphone" effect perfectly, but Jay was awesome so who knows but him.

Please stop, your scaring me. I'm very sensitive you have to take people like me and my family in consideration when posting comments with such filth on the internet. God bless young man.

Damn dude, that sounds intense... I get that feeling of not belonging in comparison to everything else, but I think it's more from being an antisocial than a medical condition :P. But all jokes aside I wish you the best, keep on keepin' on! (and listening to good music (like jay))

beautiful..RIP Jay..you will always be with us in your music.

Robert Banks, why? If you listened to all the material available by Jay and the band you would know exactly why people get excited about Mr.Reatard. Also, i would like to include some faceless insults, you are bland and i bet your hygiene is poor. HA!

if you find a particular artist "bland," that's wholly your opinion (and truly a lazy way to state your opinion without identifying what makes his music "bland"). my "reasons" for liking him would "fail" to YOU. but hey, the world does revolve around you. indie artists become famous by virtue. He was popular BEFORE he died. reasons I like: jay sang with a fire in his belly, it felt authentic, a great ear for pop hooks and melodies, good lyrics. what do you do? besides being a pathetic virgin?

I think it might be the steve vai signature from ibanez.

Thanks man. I always feel like i'm in a dream. Everything looks strange and foreign, feels like I don't belong in comparison to everything else. This gets worse if I don't get enough sleep.

I honestly don't see why this(meaning him) is so hyped. Nothing new or creative or interesting is going on here. I think maybe people only like him because he died. Yeah, you can respond to this comment and hate on me but ask yourself, what on Earth makes this so worthy of all the hype? You'll try to find reasons but you will fail because it's just not there. This is boring. Sorry. Not necessarily my opinion. It's just simply bland.

I don't actually know either, but how his voice keeps echoing for so long at around 2:00 I just assume its a delay or echo with the feedback turned up a ton and the time between each echo turned down pretty low. but that's only a guess

he was very pre-occupied with killing and dying. prophetic. maybe he knew that he would one day die.

@pineapplecircus tell me about it......there aren't very many really good new acts out there and now there's one less......check out the bands on hovak records though.....they've got some good ones.
