The Jesus and Mary Chain bring their trademark searing, feedback drenched rock and roll to New Zealand!

William and Jim Reid led The Jesus and Mary Chain to become pioneers of the post-punk notion. Like mad scientists, the two shy lads from the outskirts of Glasgow would concoct formulas of noisy, effects-driven scores to accompany lyrics of angst and discontent.

Cutting-edge in 1985, “Now, thirty-something years on, as the feedback fades, the smoke clears and the years roll by, the band are as compelling as ever”.

Maybe not so mad after all. The bands unique sound would make them a crucial part of any nutritious musical diet, with later groups including Nirvana and My Bloody Valentine tipping their hat to the incredible outputs of The Brothers Reid and cohorts.

Their live shows are a spellbinding experience, the setlist bursting with Classics – Just Like Honey, April Skies, Head On, Darklands, Happy When It Rains, Some Candy Talking, Far Gone and Out, Reverence + more.
