Not Banned From The Roxy
It's not really a huge jump from the music of the Velvet Underground to that of East Kilbride's most famous dysfunctional brothers, However where yesterday's post saw a band at the very peak of their powers and ability the contents of today's bootleg shows a band with a rudimentary ability at best, I am probably being a bit unfair as I suspect that the members of the Mary Chain were more proficient musicians by the tail end of 1985 than they were letting on. This five track, twelve and a bit minutes of noise was more than half of a typical set by the band at this time. Attending a Jesus and Mary Chain concert way back then may not have been the most musical of events but it was exciting.
I'm not sure if enjoy is the right word here.
