Song of The Day: Jay Reatard - I Know A Place

Quite possibly my favorite Jay track, and the flip of the single, a cover of The Go-Between’s, Don’t Let Him Come Back, is equally fantastic. The fact that this fan vid uses clips from birthday boy, Harry Dean Stanton’s, role in Paris, Texas, just gives me a good reason to add it to the Song of The Day rotation.
