The Jesus And Mary Chain - Never Understand (1985)

Since i have just post the latest music from  The Jesus And Mary Chain, i thought it very apt to post you the bands first ever single as, this weeks time machine video of the week.

The Jesus and Mary Chain are a Scottish alternative / indie rock band formed in East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire Scotland, 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. Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie was the bands drummer from 1984 to 1986.

Never Understand was the bands debut single, it was released on the Blanco y Negro label in February 1985. The track was also included on the bands debut album Psychocandy, which was released later in 1985, on 18th November 1985. The bands line up at the time was, Jim Reid (on vocals), William Reid (on guitar), Douglas Hart (on bass) and Bobby Gillespie (on drums).

You never understandin’
You never understand me
