JAMC--No, i’m not the first and i certainly will not be the last to to praise the greatness of The Jesus And Mary Chain. There are too many bands to mention that i adore and while bands come and go and back again the Mary Chain has remained a constant in my life ever since being introduced to them well over 20 years ago!

Blending sweet pop sensibilities with serrated noise they are undeniably one of the most influential bands in the history of alternative music.

I recently (well, a few months ago) picked up the Mary Chain’s b-sides and rarities boxed set from Rhino Records. Though a handful of tracks appear on the Barbed Wire Kisses LP the set is chocked full of killer demos, some covers and other unreleased tracks. I would have to say the set is a MUST for any Mary Chain fan.
