Like the Velvet Underground, the chart success of The Jesus and Mary Chain was virtually nonexistent, but their artistic impact was incalculable. Quite simply, this British group made the world safe for white noise by orchestrating a sound dense in squalling feedback which served as an inspiration to everyone from My Bloody Valentine to Dinosaur Jr.
Though the supporting players drifted in and out of focus, the heart of The Jesus and Mary Chain remained vocalists and guitarists William and Jim Reid, Scottish-born brothers heavily influenced not only by underground legends like the Velvets and the Stooges but also by the sonic grandeur and pop savvy of Phil Spector and Brian Wilson.
Most famous for albums such as Psychocandy and Honey’s Dead, The Jesus and Mary Chain’s latest album, Damage and Joy, was released in March 2017.
The Jesus and Mary Chain have announced a UK and European tour during which they'll play their second studio album, 1987's Darklands. A departure in every sense, this release saw William and Jim close ranks in the studio, playing all instruments themselves. Darklands also features such gems as April Skies (which would become their biggest hit), On The Wall, Nine Million Rainy Days and Sympathy for the Devil.
Tickets on sale at 10am on Friday 11th October.
