Monday Music Rewind: The Jesus and Mary Chain

The Jesus and Mary Chain

The Jesus and Mary Chain are a Scottish alternative rock band formed in East Kilbride, Glasgow in 1983. The band revolves around the songwriting partnership of brothers Jim and William Reid. They released a string of albums, singles and EPs between their 1983 formation and their 1999 breakup, and gained notoriety in their early days for short sets and violence that became common at their live shows. In 2007, the band reunited.

They said they got their name from a line in a Bing Crosby film, although six months later they admitted that this wasn’t true. Other accounts suggest that the name derived from an offer on a breakfast cereal packet, where customers could send off for a gold Jesus & Mary chain.

“Head On” is a song written by Jim Reid and William Reid of the Scottish alternative rock band The Jesus and Mary Chain, originally recorded for their 1989 album Automatic. It was released as a single in November 1989. Buy it here.

I only recently learned that singer Josh Clayton-Felt died on January 19, 2000 at 32 of testicular cancer. Sad.

Guitarist Michael Ward went on to play with John Hiatt and eventually became a member of The Wallflowers.

Enjoy the trip back to 1991.
