The Jesus And Mary Chain: 40 Years

We 21/08/2024 19:00
Alexela Kontserdimaja, Tallinn
41.50 - 71.50

Scottish legends The Jesus and Mary Chain are celebrating their 40th anniversary in 2024 since the release of their first single. To mark the occasion, brothers Jim and William Reid have released a new album ‘Glasgow Eyes’ and a major European tour which brings them to Estonia after 35 years on August 21st. It is the tour’s only performance in the Baltic states.

The special guest of The Jesus and Mary Chain's Tallinn concert is Röövel Ööbik.

Tickets for 49 - 69 euros are on sale at Piletilevi. Both standing and seated seating are available.

 In June 1989, The Jesus and Mary Chain performed at the Rock Summer festival at the Tallinn Tallinn Song Festival Grounds in the Estonian Soviet Socialist Republic in front of 100,000 people. This concert is considered one of the most influential events for the alternative youth in the soon-to-be-free Estonia.

Feedback, fuzz, chaos, misrule and sugary pop melodies a la Phil Spector spring to mind when it comes to The Jesus and Mary Chain. They released a constant string of albums, singles and EPs until their demise in 1998. Having influenced many post-punk and noise rock bands, the group finally reunited in 2007 and are now back with their most inspiring work in decades. ‘Glasgow Eyes’, an album that answers the question: What would a harmonious Jesus and Mary Chain sound like?

‘Glasgow Eyes’ was recorded at Mogwai’s Castle of Doom studio in Glasgow. 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.

‘Glasgow Eyes’ not only extends The Jesus and Mary Chain 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.
