Jesus And Mary Chain Psychocandy (Reissue 002)

I have to admit that I just missed Psychocandy back in November 1985. I was still probably on my dose of early eighties pop/new wave pop ala Howard Jones, Platinum Blonde, Abc, and Simple Minds. A couple months later I ended up picking up the Some Candy Talking EP on vinyl for 4.99 Canadian at the local A and A Records and was hooked. Soon after I had Psychocandy on Tape. Life definately changed.

Here we are approx 25 years later and Psychocandy gets the 2 CD/DVD reissue treatment. Over the next few months all 6 Jesus and The Mary Chain albums will get the reissue treatment with the original album, b-sides, outtakes, demos, etc included. The soaring grungy buzzy guitars still sound as fresh as they were in 1986.

People have been led to believe some other band in 1991 started the alternative revolution. Sorry to break the news. It happened in the eighties and this may have been the first band to do it.
