Must See concert: Jesus And Mary Chain In September

25 years ago, a very hungover young rock journalist interview the Jesus And Mary Chain over many a Heinekin and got on very well with them as well, a rarity for the guy who fought with hald of the rock stars in the country.

It helped that JAMC were coming off a really terrific album, Darklands, and  were on fire and  at the top of my list of indie noise rockers who bleed thru the feedback. Although, in retrospect, Darklands wasnt really like that: it wasn't the supersonic jet taking off but a handful of deeply felt folk rock songs. Like Astral Weeks or something, which was the comparison I provided Jim and which I guess is why he liked me.
Oddly enough, i have never seen em live so from what I can tell, this Irving Plaza gig on September 14th (a friday) is a must see though JAMC will probably give  My Bloody Valentine a run for their money when it comes to making your ears bleed. The Reid Brothers reid are the last band standing from all those early 1980s trangsressive Scottish bands and the best of them? I wouldn't argue but I might also hold out for Fire Engines.
See it before they both go deaf.
