The Jesus and Mary Chain

It's been a while since this crew slipped out of my speakers. More than a while actually, years, and I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because it's music for boys and I live in a house of ladies. To be honest though, in a house full of girls I am rediscovering this via headphones...

This blend of dark, fuzzbox filled feedback can be a bit challenging for most girls. But give it a listen. "Just Like Honey" is a beautiful track from their first album Psycho Candy and probably the song of theirs that drew me in initially. I'd never heard that much distortion mixed with such mellow voice before.

These guys can carry some of the blame for my hairstyle in the 80s, for sure.

I see that in the decades since I really took note of these lads they've slipped out a couple of albums I didn't know about. I'm going to have to look them up...
