The Jesus and Mary Chain
Talking about the first Velvet Underground album, Brian Eno famously said that although it initially only sold 30,000 copies, “everyone who bought one of those 30,000 copies started a band.” Sixteen years later, The Jesus and Mary Chain released their trailblazing debut, “Psychocandy”. And while the world wasn’t ready for its barrage of haunting melodies floating over walls of fuzz, the album’s influence continues to be felt. In 2007, brothers Jim and William Reid reunited, playing Coachella with Scarlett Johansson and recording a cover of George Harrison’s “All Things Must Pass” for the TV show “Heroes”. In 2017, the band released a new album, “Damage and Joy”, scoring a Top 10 hit on "Billboard"’s Independent Albums chart.
