Psychocandy shows in November

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

According to the nme
The Jesus And Mary Chain are set to perform their classic 1985 debut album 'Psychocandy' at three UK shows this November.

The gigs will take place in anticipation of the album's 30th anniversary, with the band kicking off the trio of concerts at London's Troxy on November 19, following it with shows at Manchester Academy on November 20 and Glasgow Barrowlands on November 21. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday May 16.

The band's last UK appearances took place at London's Roundhouse and Forum in 2008. Speaking about the impending 30th anniversary of 'Psychocandy', Jim Reid of the band has said: "'Psychocandy' was meant to be a kick in the teeth to all of those who stood in our way at the time, which was practically the whole music industry. in 1985 there were a great many people who predicted no more than a six month life span for The Mary Chain. to celebrate the approaching 30th anniversary of the album, we would like to perform it in its entirety. We will also perform key songs from that period that did not feature on the album."

The Jesus And Mary Chain will play:

London The Troxy (November 19)
Manchester Academy (20)
Glasgow Barrowlands (21)
Cheers.
Steve

I'd love to mate but there's no chance I can get the Saturday off work so I've had to settle for Manchester. Cheers for the thought though :notworthy:

Saw them a year ago and they were superb. False starts, missed lyrics and bum notes! Magical.

Damn.

Saw them at the Barrowlands Feb 86. Their show lasted less than half an hour and the crowd were very hostile.

Still rank it in my Top Three gigs, even though I was covered in gob at the end of it.

Pink Industry were terrible tho.
See! I told you it wasn't 'just a phase'!

One the best gigs I have ever been to was JAMC in Perth (no not the Scottish one) about 15 years ago. It was an absolute ball-tearer of a performance and the whole crowd staggered out totally spent. It was ACE!

My third ever gig was the original Psychocandy tour at Leeds uni in late 85. Support was the Shop Assistants and Felt.

If I remember rightly we got about 30 minutes from JAMC which was classed as a lengthy set back then!
Give me one good reason
