Ignored 150: Psychocandy by the Jesus and Mary Chain


It’s a gnarly, noisy debut from an dour, angry band. It’s Psychocandy, the 1985 first full-length from the Jesus and Mary Chain. Cam and Sammy talk about noise and melodies and why JAMC weren’t shoegaze, New Wave, goth… but were kind of all of those things (but not reall)! We also talk about the Reid brothers and their hair, the Reid brothers and their fist fights, and how film, commerce can rebirth a band. To close things out, we revisit the Beautiful South (and how they totally were NOT Britpop) plus talk a bit about random YouTube covers of “Maggot Brain”.
