The Jesus and Mary Chain - PsychocandyThe Jesus and Mary Chain - Psychocandy

 

... then your heroes have been resurrected. The Jesus and Mary Chain are back! A huge wall of distorted noise from William Reid's guitar drowning out brother Jim's vocals set against a sea of psychedelic bright lights with images of poverty in 1980s Britain. Forget the Gallagher brothers - the Reid brothers invented raw, angry music ten years earlier.

The brothers from Glasgow have returned to packed audiences. But there are no riots now when they play. Perhaps Britain has mellowed in the 30 years since their ground breaking LP, Psychocandy. We may have got older, but the Jesus and Mary Chain is still here - fresh, edgy, visceral. If you have just missed them, they'll be back. The USA beckons now before they return to the UK. Maybe now they will get the recognition they truly deserve.
