Distant Early Warning: Jay Reatard - If You Haven't Seen the "Piss" Video, Look No Further - Cafe Tacuba, Dax Riggs, etc.

Among this week's Distant Early Warnings comes Jay Reatard, who is set to hit Walter's "Possibly Still" On Washington December 8. The art-damaged garage-rocker recently pissed on (and pissed off) his backing band at Goner Fest 6 in Memphis. It's hard to tell exactly why the things happened in the video, but suffice to say these guys soon took their leave of the erratic Reatard.

When Reatard's circus hits town in December, he will have members of the Danish band Cola Freaks in tow as his backing band. We suggest ponchos.
