The Jesus And Mary Chain Is Playing Psychocandy Live

May 15, 2014 | Andy Cush

Book your tickets to the UK: The Jesus and Mary Chain will play their landmark debut album Psychocandy in its entirety at shows in London, Manchester, and Glasgow this November. No word on whether they’ll play facing the audience or with their backs to the crowd like they did back in the day.

Tickets go on sale Friday. Says lead singer Jim Reid:

Psychocandy was meant to be a kick in the teeth to all of those who stood in our way at the time, which was practically the whole music industry. In 1985 there were a great many people who predicted no more than a six-month life span for The Mary Chain. To celebrate the approaching 30th anniversary of the album, we would like to perform it in its entirety. We will also perform key songs from that period that did not feature on the album.

To get you in the mood, here’s “Taste The Floor.”
