2002 Singles Compilation Available On Vinyl for the Very First Time!
Exploring a vein mined by their heroes The Velvet Underground and The Stooges, Glasgow, Scotland-based alt-rock cult heroes The Jesus & Mary Chain were the link between pure pop and white noise in the '80s and '90s. An inspiration to the next generation of subversives from My Bloody Valentine to Dinosaur Jr. to The Chemical Brothers, the group was forged in 1984 and issued their seminal debut single "Upside Down" (Creation) later that year. In 1985, the band connected with Blanco Y Negro/Warner Bros. and released the smash single "You Trip Me Up" and superlative debut album, Psychocandy. More sonic pop experiments followed with Darklands (1987), Automatic (1989), Honey's Dead (1992), Stoned & Dethroned (1994), and Munki (1998). Available on vinyl for the very first time, their classic 2002 compilation 21 Singles gathers some of the band's most beloved sides including the aforementioned "Upside Down" and "You Trip Me Up," plus "April Skies," "Darklands" and "Just Like Honey."
