#MaryChain6Music - The Ultimate Jesus and Mary Chain Playlist

2 hours
First broadcast:
Sunday 01 December 2013

It's 30 (yes... 30) years since brothers Jim and William Reid formed The Jesus and Mary Chain - and with it unleashed their signature distortion-laden jangly guitar sounds, which would later form the foundation for shoegazing.

With a career spanning six studio albums, including indie disco favourites such as 'Just Like Honey' and 'Some Candy Talking', the Scottish alt-rockers are releasing their entire back catalogue in a vinyl boxset for the first time.

So to mark the band's 30th birthday, Tom Robinson invites 6 Music listeners to create The Ultimate Jesus and Mary Chain-inspired playlist.

But what should we include? You could pick classics or rarieties, influences, fellow Scottish artists (including, of course, tracks linked to former drummer, Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie) or any other weird and wonderful connection you can think of...
