“the most notorious band since the Sex Pistols…Some of Psychocandy is beautifully wasted pop; some sounds like being trapped in a wind tunnel full of broken glass and bees; the rest sounds like both happening at once.” – Dorian Lynskey, The Observer
“The Jesus and Mary Chain’s debut is a decadent alt-rock masterpiece of bubblegum pop – with “Just Like Honey,” “My Little Underground” and “Never Understand” – drowned in feedback.” – Rolling Stone, The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time
30 years on the band return – regularly cited by the media as one of the great rock’n’roll bands and by a raft of new groups as a major influence.
THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN is now pleased to add Boston, DC, Tempe and Las Vegas shows to the Fall North American Psychocandy tour in addition to previously announced shows in NYC, LA and Philly. This will be the continuation of a year of activity not only celebrating the 30th anniversary of Psychocandy but also looking firmly ahead to the future.
