The Jesus and Mary Chain’s 30th anniversary celebrated with vinyl box set


jesus mary chain

The Jesus and Mary Chain first got together in East Kilbride, Scotland in 1983, making this year their 30 anniversary. Demon Music Group is celebrating the occasion with the December 13th release of a vinyl box set comprising the band’s entire discography.

The Complete Vinyl Collection will feature all six of JMC’s studio albums (1985’s Psychocandy, 1987’s Darklands, 1989’s Automatic, 1992’s Honey’s Dead, 1994’s Stoned & Dethroned, and 1998’s Munki), each remastered from the original tapes at half-speed. Also included: the first vinyl pressing of the band’s 2003 BBC live compilation, a two-LP collection of “all” the band’s BBC studio recordings “housed together on vinyl for the first time,” and a B-sides and rarities LP with a fan-picked tracklist. A 32-page hardcover book with photographs and interviews rounds out the collection. Fans will also be able to upload a photo of their face for possible inclusion on a poster.

Pe-order are now ongoing through Myplaydirect. As of now, the package doesn’t appear to be available in the US, so hopefully you have a friend abroad.
