Blood Visions is one of my favourite Jay Reatard records: it works great at the gym, but it’s also an insanely quirky punk record with a million moving parts. And it never slows down: this thing always moves at a million miles an hour.
You can hear a ton of the Misfits influence, but there’s also a poppy style that breaks in that can be easily traced back to the Ramones. And I can hear a ton of Minor Threat in here too.
Like the best punk, Blood Visions feels like it’s stuck in a time machine from the 80s. Which makes it so easy to love for fans of the genre.
