Lost Sounds- Memphis Is Dead LP. Debut album here from the Lost Sounds, one of the longest-lived and most prolific projects for Memphis garage-punk icon Jay Reatard. Lost Sounds combined the manic energy and hard emotional edges of his earlier band the Reatards with a more moody and melodic approach, as synthesizers joined noisy guitars and pummeling drums in the lineup in a manner that sometimes recalled the sonic attack of synth punk pioneers like the Screamers and Suicide. Jay Reatard formed Lost Sounds in the spring of 1999, joining forces with Alicja Trout (who had began working with synthesizers in her short-lived group the Clears) and Rich Cook from the Reatards, Knaughty Knights and Lover! THESE ARE ON THE LIMITED SMOKEY CLEAR WAX!
