The Jesus And Mary Chain 'Live At Barrowland' Reissue Out Now
The Fuzz Club reissue of The Jesus And Mary Chain's 'Psychocandy' live album 'Live At Barrowland' is out in Europe now (and June 24 in the US). Pick up the LP/CD in your go-to record shop, or from our store if you want to get your hands on the exclusive splatter version.
Recorded at Glasgow’s Barrowland Ballroom on the 30th anniversary Psychocandy tour, this live LP captures the Mary Chain's cult classic debut in all its boundary-pushing and feedback-ridden glory. The Fuzz Club reissue comes with brand new artwork, 180g vinyl and a gatefold jacket with a booklet glued inside containing photos from the tour and an interview with the Reid brothers and Alan McGee.
The influence that ‘Psychocandy’ and its pioneering sonic belligerence had on popular music cannot be overstated. Taking bittersweet pop melodies and tearing them up apart through the medium of buzzsaw guitars, ear-piercing feedback and an unapologetic hostility towards their listeners, the band’s breakthrough album experimented with noise in a way that had never been done before and would inspire for generations to come. The ‘Live At Barrowland’ LP captures ‘Psychocandy’s complete 14 tracks in a live setting and in all their boundary-pushing and feedback-ridden glory. The CD and digital versions of the reissue – including the download card that comes with the vinyl – also feature seven bonus tracks taken from the prelude set on the night, including such fan-favourites as ‘April Skies’, ‘Head On’ and ‘Reverence’.
