A religious experience

If I go to a better gig this year than The Jesus And Mary Chain at Y Plas on Tuesday night, I'll be absolutely amazed. So good I could forgive them for playing neither 'Never Understand' nor 'April Skies', and for interrupting Sonic Youth's 'Kool Thing' with their intro music (T. Rex's 'I Love To Boogie').

And yet, according to Trev of Oddbox Records and Pop 'N' Hops, a veteran of Mary Chain gigs stretching back to 1988, they were only slightly above average on the night. The mind boggles at the thought of what they might be like when actually on form...
