Thirty Days of C-86 # 30 Jesus & Mary Chain

And to bring this series to a close, the group who gave this scene birth, more than any other. Some Candy Talking was the only record they put out in 1986. It capitalised on the wave and well-justified hype achieved the previous year with the release of Psychocandy. The C-86 was a movement in many ways frozen in time, very particular to its time and place, but it nevertheless laid down a template for pale white things to aspire to over the next three decades. Its influence, given how small and specific it seemed at the time, is just remarkable.
