Blues From A Gun-The Jesus and Mary Chain

Yes Automatic was maligned, perhaps it was too uniform, perhaps too well-oiled. But none of that matters now because when people like to make noise these day it’s some wierd Mogwai/Sigur Ros space hybrid with exploding asteroids and icebergs calving from glaciers. Yawn. How ’bout four minutes of grinderoo and insincere blow offs of finely sculpted Robert Smith mop-tops. Perfect soundtrack for your demolition derby video starring disaffected 80s revivalist hipster teen.

  • Piffle for the blow off of the time by Insufferable music Snobs who championed JAMC when they had one album, but had to move on to the next flavor.

    The album is good, and ‘Head On’ rocks.

  • Thank you, TC, I needed that.

  • JaMC is awesome. Definitely a big influence for me. What can I say but that I love guitars. Especially guitars used in a combo melodic/soundscape fashion.

    Of course the end result is that I think SY are the rightful inheritors of Jimi and I know this puts me out on a big, big limb.

  • I liked this song better when it was called “UV Ray”. But I kid. I kid because I love this album. When the weather’s nice and I want to roll down the window and blast some rock and roll, this goes in the CD player.

    I don’t think I’d enjoy Spacemen 3 as much if it wasn’t for JAMC. I don’t know why I say that, but it’s true.

  • By the way, I don’t know if it’s something in your metatags or whatever the hell it is, but all 3b related sites are blocked at work. That’s one of the reasons I haven’t been around as much. It could be all the hot emu on emu action that’s doing it.

  • seitz- read us through google! just have google translation read it “english” to “english”- what about an RSS reader? you can read us that way, even though we’d prefer to have you comment.

    that blows.

  • Hey, check the queue. I finally drafted one.

  • Awesome! It goes up tomorrow- great write up- anytime you have something throw it up, especially if you have links to stuff you’ve already done at your place- the links are great because you see a ton of shows, and I know the kids here like to read about them. UC loves ____. I checked the appropriate categories, or at least tried.

  • this shit rocks. i LOOOVE the mary chain, though they’re some weird dudes to meet.

  • TC right!
