The Jesus And Mary Chain "Damage and Joy" Tour, hits the Roadmender Northampton - Sept 27th


The Stooges, the Ramones, Einstrzende 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 McGees Creation Records to flourish into the home of Britains 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.

By 1998, however, chaos had devolved into terminal conflict and the JAMC story was over. A spirit of sibling stubbornness continued, with each Reid assuming that the other wouldnt want to reunite. Eventually they found what sounds like a reluctant common ground by agreeing, id do it if you do it. As Jim adds, We thought, Well fuck it, why not? It seems crazy not to. And if we leave it any later maybe were gonna be too old.

So what changed?

We started to can you believe? listen to each other a bit more, he explains. In the last couple of years, weve buried the hatchet to some degree, and thankfully not into each other. Most people who know us would say that we haven't mellowed that much. I think it was to do with the fact, dare I say it, that wisdom comes with age. Lets live and let live, and lets take each others opinions into account. The thing that surprised both me and William was that there wasn't much animosity in between us in the studio.

Work on the album, subsequently titled Damage and Joy (a reference to the English translation of schadenfreude), began in September 2015, with producer Youth also contributing bass and diplomacy to proceedings during sessions in London, Dublin and Granada, Spain. News of the album broke to the world at large via Alan McGee now again their manager in November 2016 and the lead track Amputation emerged just a few weeks later.

Damage and Joy expertly judges that precarious balancing act of needing to both grow and to remain true to the spirit that captured peoples imagination the first time around. Ultimately, the triumph of Damage and Joy is one in which its sonics transcend its story. The interesting thing about this record is what comes out of the speakers. To make a good record is an achievement if youre twenty-two, but to do it in your fifties, the way we are, I think is a minor miracle
