Biography

Biography by Jason Ankeny

Like the Velvet Underground, their most obvious influence, the chart success of the Jesus and Mary Chain was virtually nonexistent, but their artistic impact was incalculable; quite simply, the British group made the world safe for white noise, orchestrating a sound dense in squalling feedback which served as an inspiration to everyone from My Bloody Valentine ...

Editorial Reviews

Deluxe three disc (two CDs + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) edition including the original 1989 album plus bonus tracks and a bonus DVD. This deluxe expanded edition features all the non-album b-sides, the Sidewalking EP, outtakes, BBC Radio Sessions, live tracks and rarities such as the 1988 re-record of early b-side 'Just Out Of Reach'. The DVD features the promo videos for all the singles, the band-made film for Just Out Of Reach and previously unreleased archival TV appearances, including two complete live performances from SNUB TV, an interview at their rehearsal studio for Rapido, and two MTV features, including an entertainingly confrontational interview with the Reid brothers by a hapless VJ. Edsel.

Simply put, why do people slag this album off?? Loved it in 1989 and it sounds just as vital today, with some of their most notable songs ever in "Head On" (the Pixies covered that song on "Trompe Le Monde") and "Blues From A Gun". Maybe it was the drum machines?? If anything, that factor is what gives this album its unique flavour. In the liner notes, the Reids said the goal was to mix their noisy guitar pop with hiphop technology, as they were into rap music at the time...and ya know what?? It works, and if anything, it makes the album a fresh listen in 2012. This reissue, like the other 5 in the series, are essential and perfectly done, nothing left out...singles, EPs, B-sides, even the way-cool "Surfin' USA" 12-inch, and the DVD is icing on the cake with promo vidclips, TV appearances, live stuff, interviews, etc...the standard for all reissue programs...and the JAMC are BACK!! Seeing em in NYC, Sept 14th baby!! Forget the Smiths...the JAMC are they greatest band to emerge from the UK in the 80s all the way...and I stand by that statement!!

Finally they got it right with the new recently released deluxe catalog of Jesus & Mary Chain.
I wasn't a fan of the previous release, the dual disc sets as it's easy to scratch one side of a disc and that could affect both sides since the label acts as a protective cover for the cd.
Now it seems more are taking the cues from Suede, their catalog has been the finest deluxe treatments yet, each of the sets come with the full
album on disc 1, filled with b sides and demos from disc 1 to 2. The brits loved b-sides so there's always plenty of that action.
The 3rd disc is tv appearances and music videos. Although, unlike the Suede sets, it would've been nice to include a complete concert of the band
during it's heyday.
The set is better on these than ever before, well since the vinyl came out at least.
Well done and more need to come out in this format !

Will never understand why this album gets such short shrift from JAMC Nation. Best of all Reid Bros. worlds -- snarling guitars, beautifully delicate ballads, etc. -- as far as this fan's concerned, and that includes their hip-hop beats. Nice having the b-sides handy with this collection, too, a power of positive thinking.
