The Jesus and Mary Chain, Psychocandy Live At Barrowland, Vinyl, LP, Cooking Vinyl, 2022

Live archive release. In November 2014, The Jesus and Mary Chain celebrated three decades of their incendiary cult-classic debut album, Psychocandy, with a run of tour dates in which the infamous Scottish group played the album in full for the very first time in the band’s history. As part of the Psychocandy tour, the Mary Chain descended on Glasgow’s Barrowland Ballroom – a legendary venue down the road from where the Reid brothers grew up in neighboring East Kilbride – and tore through the songs that would propel them to worldwide acclaim upon Psychocandy’s release in 1985. The Barrowland performance – an equal-parts deafening and blinding assault on the senses – was cut to vinyl by engineer Noel Summerville and originally released in 2015.
