The Jesus & Mary Chain

"For a few years now, people had been trying to get us to do Psychocandy shows, and there didn't really seem much point to us [until] someone brought up the idea of a 30th-anniversary tour," says Jim Reid, now 53, in a soft-spoken Scottish burr. "So we took it a bit more seriously, [thinking that] if we wait any later it's going to be basically too late. William and myself had a good think and started to weigh out the pros and cons, and it seemed there were more reasons for doing it than not. We'd never performed a lot of the songs on the album live. It seemed like a good idea to go out and do those tunes." - [Village Voice]

The Jesus and Mary Chain are on the last few dates of their North American tour celebrating Psychocandy's 30th anniversary. That tour hit NYC's Terminal 5 last week for two shows (September 24 & 25). Both had the same setlists: an eight-song "hits" set followed by Psychocandy in full, with Aimee Nash from openers The Black Ryder joining the band to sing on "Just Like Honey."
