The Jesus and Mary Chain
November 1st marks the 25th anniversary of the release of Psychocandy, the Jesus & Mary Chain’s debut album.

To celebrate Jim Reid has given an interview to the Von Pip Musical Express where he talks about the album comparing it to “an old photograph” and the backlash they recieved after their initial success. He also answers the inevitable question if the band will celebrate the anniversary by playing the album at some live dates… “I wouldn’t rule it out, but the truth of the matter is it’s a very hard record to play live.”

The band recently released a 2CD ‘best of’ which you can get for a mere £4.99 by clicking here.

  2. Hi There,
    We’re big fans of the mary chain and have started a group up on facebook as we’d love to persuade them to do a gig to celebrate 25 years since the release of psychocandy. Is there any chance of this happening? Is there any chance of any news from Jim?
    I really would love the chance to interview him for our page. Is this at all possible?
