Editors’ Notes The Jesus and Mary Chain’s 1985 debut juxtaposes gnarly feedback and dissonance against crafty pop melody, taking cues from The Velvet Underground, Ramones, Suicide, and ’60s girl groups. Randy sing-along opener “Just Like Honey” sets a fuzzed-out, relentless tone, while the delirious and dreamy “Cut Dead” could be anyone’s soundtrack to unyielding rainy days. Happy downer “Taste the Floor” says stars don’t shine, and album finale “It’s So Hard” is a life lesson aptly drenched in echo and distortion.
