Barbed Wire Kisses: The Jesus And Mary Chain Story
- Hardback - Polygon
Musically, culturally and in terms of sheer attitude, the Jesus and Mary Chain stand alone. Their story begins in the bleak new town of East Kilbride, near Glasgow, at the dawn of the 1980s with two chronically shy brothers, James and William Reid, listening to music in their shared bedroom. What follows charts their stormy live performances, signing to Creation, fraternal tensions that rival those of the Gallaghers, and, ultimately, their total self-belief and passion.
