The Stooges, the Ramones, Einstürzende Neubauten, The Shangri-Las: an eclectic range of influences for sure, and one that inspired brothers Jim and William Reid as The Jesus and Mary Chain emerged from Lanarkshire, Scotland, to become one of the most influential bands of their era.

What followed was a rush of creativity and controversy in which the power of their music – most strikingly the landmark debut ‘Psychocandy’ – was matched by the volatility of their relationship. Their journey sparked a wider influence. Not only did their success help Alan McGee’s Creation Records to flourish into the home of Britain’s most critically acclaimed bands from My Bloody Valentine to Oasis to Super Furry Animals, but early drummer Bobby Gillespie made history of his own with Primal Scream.

Cold Cave
Cold Cave returns with their first new music since last Fall’s The Idea of Love picture disc 7″. Titled “Glory,” it is a bit of a departure from those songs; it’s a glossy track featuring sparkly synths and woeful vocals in Cold Cave’s signature chilly croon. The video, directed by Amy Lee, epitomizes cool with a minimal aesthetic and an artistic integrity that holds true. “Glory” is a hint at what is to come from Cold Cave in the near future.

    Yes! Psychocandy was the soundtrack of my teenage years. Pick me! I’ll take my nine-year-old and blow her mind.

      Will others judge if I cried tears of joy if anything from Automatic is played?

    I first heard the Jesus and Mary Chain when they had a song on The Crow soundtrack in ‘94. I’ve been a fan ever since but have never managed to get to see them. There always seems to be a conflict whenever they play! This time I have no scheduling conflict, but I just got laid off from my job so now I can’t afford tickets. ☹️ I would love to go to this show!

    I can’t think of a better way to usher in the fall season than a night with the sonic stylings of Mr and Mr Reid. Entrance me! Hypnotize me! Rattle my aching bones! Give me the chance to tune in and drone to the rhythm of JAMC!!!

  16. Mike October 17, 2017 at 8:11 pm #

    I was so bummed out when The Jesus And Mary Chain cancelled their show in May due to a power outage and would sure love to see them this time. Let’s hope there are no issues this time. Please set me up with tickets and I will be very greatful. The Jesus And Mary Chain and PDXPIPELINE rule!
