The Jesus And Mary Chain - Just Like Honey

I accidentally kicked Douglas Hart from The Jesus and Mary Chain up the arse.

External image

I was working at a Primal Scream concert in the infamous Glasgow Barrowlands, aka the Barras, and hiked myself up on a small ledge up the back of the hall. 

It was the VIP bit, and as I was sitting swinging my legs along to the music, Irvine Welsh came and stood on one side of me, while Douglas Hart then stood on the other.  Without any warning, Heart leaned forward to put his beer down just as I was mid right-leg swing in the air.  As a result, my foot went up his arse, and I froze.

He didn’t say anything, and a minute later I fled back to work before he could recognise me.

Imitation Lunch - The Jesus & Mary Chain - Reverberation (Doubt) (13th Floor Elevators Cover)

The Jesus & Mary Chain rub their signature sound all over this cover of the 13th Floor Elevators song. It lacks the raw, nasally power of Roky Erickson and the jug blowing, and compensates with drum machine fuzziness. This cover is pretty great, especially if you’re very into JAMC and their beautiful noise, but it lacks the massive sounding bass line (it’s there it’s just subdued by all the other things happening like the drum machine). That’s really what I like so much about the original, there actually is reverberation all over it with the heavy heavy bass and the bombastic deep drums. It’s not to say that this cover isn’t good, because it definitely doesn’t suck at all. I suggest listening to both versions and judging for yourself. -a
