In November 1985, The Jesus and Mary Chain’s landmark debut album Psychocandy was released.
In anticipation of that album’s 30th anniversary, The Jesus and Mary Chain will be performing Psychocandy at three UK concerts in November 2014 -- their opening salvo in what threatens to be a host of live onslaughts, festival dates and other special plans from the band in the run-up to Psychocandy’s anniversary date next year. The last time The Jesus and Mary Chain appeared in the UK was at their sold-out shows at The Roundhouse and The Forum in London in 2008.
A violent and electrifying presence on the ‘80s and ‘90s scenes, The Jesus And Mary Chain mirrored the convulsive zeitgeist of their time. Not only did they have a profound impact on the music of their generation, they also played an integral part in shaping the future sound of British music.
The Jesus And Mary Chain’s unique feedback-saturated sound has been an acknowledged influence on generations of bands, while their stark iconic image -- co-opted by artists and fashion designers alike -- has become part of the genetic code of contemporary cutting edge culture.
Returning to their roots, The Jesus And Mary Chain have teamed up with their original label boss Alan McGee, who is once again picking up the managerial reins. They are the first artists to be signed up to McGee’s newly launched Creation Management.
