The Darling Buds top 10 favourite albums : number 8 The Jesus and Mary Chain – “Psychocandy”
If the U.K. Subs were the band who made Chris want to pick up a guitar, this was the one that showed him how to do it. Audaciously stealing the coolest riffs and tunes from the Velvets and Phil Spector and completely blasting them to pieces against walls of screaming feedback. It sounded bitter and sweet and genuinely dangerous for a while, and launched the career of a boatload of indie pop chancers… (wink).
