The Jesus And Mary Chain Honey's Dead on Colored LP

Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available

Exploring territory mined by their heroes The Velvet Underground and The Stooges, Glasgow, Scotland-based alt-rockers The Jesus And Mary Chain were the link between melody and feedback in the '80s and '90s. The band's half-dozen albums, nearly two dozen singles, and riot-inducing live shows were in turn an inspiration to the next generation of sonic subversives, from My Bloody Valentine to The Chemical Brothers and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

Debut album Psychocandy (1985) defined The Jesus and Mary Chain as nihilist rebels, while its follow-up Darklands (1987) revealed their softer (albeit still gloomy) side. By the time the band recorded their third album Automatic (1989), the group was essentially a duo, made up of brothers Jim and William Reid and a drum machine.

Fourth effort Honey's Dead (1992) was titled in reference to one of Jesus And Mary Chain's early hits, "Just Like Honey," and marks a complete departure from the group's earlier musical style. Honey's Dead was recorded and mixed in the band's London studio with famed engineers Alan Moulder and Flood. Alternative radio stations picked up "Far Gone And Out" which remains one of the band's most popular singles to date while the album's first single "Reverence" attracted some controversy for the lyrics "I want to die just like Jesus Christ" and "I want to die just like JFK."
