About Jesus and Mary Chain

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, this 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 to Dinosaur Jr.

Though the supporting players drifted in and out of focus, the heart of The Jesus and Mary Chain remained vocalists and guitarists William and Jim Reid, Scottish-born brothers heavily influenced not only by underground legends like the Velvets and the Stooges but also by the sonic grandeur and pop savvy of Phil Spector and Brian Wilson.

Most famous for albums such as Psychocandy and Honey’s Dead, The Jesus and Mary Chain’s new album, Damage and Joy, was released in March 2017 and the alternative rockers have announced a handful of shows this September and October.
