Lost Sounds 'Plastic Skin' Reissue
Goner Records continue to revive works by Jimmy Lee Lindsey Jr making rare and highly sought after material available to the masses for us all to enjoy. Lost Sound's debut EP 'Plastic Skin' was initially released in 1999 with a limited run on Solid Sex Lovie Doll Records. These four tracks made up of savage synth experiments marked a turning point for Jay Reatard's songwriting whereby melodies were being introduced by Alicja, to Jay, Rich and Steven's feral punk stylings in the Reatards. This is a great follow up to Goner's reissue of 'Teenage Hate' last year, and a fitting addition to Fat Possum's collection of Lost Sounds songs from a few months back as well. Also, a T. Shirt printed with Jay's trusty Flying 'V' guitar has been put on sale as part of Yellow Bird Project's work to raise money for various charities. Money from this particular T. Shirt will be donated to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
