I Want Candy
A little Friday heartstarter you might consider a kind of B-side post to this. I've had this EP lying about for a while awaiting an upload and keep expecting someone else to beat me to it.
Track one is what the music papers used to call 'the flip' of 'Some Candy Talking'; track two is one of four acoustic versions of JAMC songs recorded for the Peel Show and included on a bonus 7" with the single - stripped of their percussion and feedback squall and booming bass and left as three/four chord strumalongs I find most of these a tad dull, to be honest, but I think 'Trip' is a good enough tune to come through regardless.
I saw the Mary Chain at about this time. Mad as a box of frogs.
The Jesus & Mary Chain - 'Psychocandy' (1986)
The Jesus & Mary Chain - 'You Trip Me Up' (acoustic) (1985)
Something completely different later, I shouldn't wonder.
