Post-punk trailblazers, noise-pop pioneers
William and Jim Reid led The Jesus and Mary Chain to become pioneers of the post-punk notion. Like mad scientists, the two shy lads from the outskirts of Glasgow would concoct formulas of noisy, effects-driven scores to accompany lyrics of angst and discontent.
Cutting-edge in 1985, “now, thirty-something years on, as the feedback fades, the smoke clears and the years roll by, the band are as compelling as ever”.
“JAMC has aged like a fine wine and are worthy of continued adoration. Their laid back coolness has only increased, making them the stuff of legends.” (Inner Edge Music)
Their live shows are a spellbinding experience, the setlist bursting with classics including 'Just Like Honey', 'April Skies', 'Head On, Darklands', 'Happy When It Rains', 'Some Candy Talking', 'Far Gone and Out', 'Reverence' and many more.
“Perfect, pure bliss in audio visual format, and real life sure seems dull now.” (Outline)
