Scottish brothers Jim & William Reid’s post-modern band’sacclaimed debut album, originally released in 1985 & nolonger available in the U.S. 15 tracks, including ‘Just LikeHoney’, ‘Never Understand’, ‘My Little Underground’, ‘YouTrip Me Up’ and ‘The Hardest Walk’, plus an unmarked bonustrack previously only included on the U.K. edition of theCD, ‘Some Candy Talking’. 1986 Blanco y Negro release.
Sounding like a collision between the 1965 Beach Boys’ tour bus and a truckload of malfunctioning vacuum cleaners, the Jesus and Mary Chain found something new to do with the old rock & roll verities. Psychocandy, the group’s debut album after a handful of sublimely catchy 45s, found the Glasgow lads drenching everything from the Ronettes to the Harley Davidson mythos and heroin chic in walls of feedback, matching even the Ramones in revisionist ingenuity. It will always sound great–and like something no other band has quite caught up to. –Rickey Wright
