This review is from: Psychocandy [Remastered Re-issue] (Audio CD)
As a 14 year old at school seeing the Mary Chain do 'In a Hole' on BBC2's Whistle Test in early 1985 was the starting point for a journey into alternative culture for me, a journey that continues to this day.
It's hard to describe how crap music was in 1985, even the independent scene was living on the fag ends of punk, then came this...quite simply one of the most original records ever recorded.
I'll always remember playing my school mates-who at the time were big fans of Phil Collins, Tears for Fears and Frankie Goes to Hollywood- 'You Trip Me Up', and trying to convince them the feedback soaked melodies sounded like a top ten hit!
Thank you Jim, William, Douglas and Bobby you saved my life!
BUY THIS RECORD!
