Glasgow Eyes

The Jesus and Mary Chain

Coloured LP, Deluxe LP, CD


Marking 40 years of The Jesus And Mary Chain, ‘Glasgow Eyes’ was recorded at Mogwai’s
Castle of Doom studio in Glasgow, where Jim and William continued the creative process
that resulted in their previous album, 2017’s ‘Damage and Joy’, becoming their highest
charting album in over twenty years. What emerged is a record that finds one of the UK’s
most influential groups embracing a productive second chapter, their maelstrom of melody,
feedback and controlled chaos now informed more audibly by their love for Suicide and
Kraftwerk and a fresh appreciation of the less disciplined attitudes found in jazz.

Jim Reid says, “But don’t expect ‘the Mary Chain goes jazz.’ People should expect a Jesus
and Mary Chain record, and that’s certainly what ‘Glasgow Eyes’ is. Our creative approach is
remarkably the same as it was in 1984, just hit the studio and see what happens. We went in
with a bunch of songs and let it take its course. There are no rules, you just do whatever it
takes. And there’s a telepathy there – we are those weird not-quite twins that finish each
other’s sentences.” ‘Glasgow Eyes’ not only extends The Jesus and Mary Chain’s story, but
feels simultaneously like a return to roots. From the incendiary ‘Psychocandy’ debut and its
classic ‘Just Like Honey’ onwards, the Reid brothers steadily became the misfits who made
good without compromise.
