Few bands have had such a huge effect on musical culture as The Jesus and Mary Chain. Their attitude alone, dressed in black, angry with the world, playing short sets drenched in feedback, set the bench mark in the post Sex Pistols music scene of London.

Their seminal debut album Psychocandy would go on to change the course of popular music channelling the sneering angst and noise distortion of the live shows into hypnotic sweet melodies layered with dark lyrics that would beguile and bewilder. Released into the world, The Jesus and Mary Chain became the darlings of the British press, as they searched to find the owner of the post punk crown in the mid 80s. With strong Velvet Underground influences and a despondent but melodic wall of noise, they went on to become the inspiration for such critically acclaimed bands such as My Bloody Valentine in the early 90s.
