Shoepergaze! Jesus and Mary Chain Get an Onstage Assist from a Bloody Valentine

jesus and mary chain, bilinda butcher, my bloody valentine

Barcleona’s Primavera Sound Festival wrapped up over the weekend, and we’ve rounded up the 10 Best Things We Saw at the annual showcase, but here’s one highlight that didn’t make our list: Jesus and Mary Chain performing “Just Like Honey” with My Bloody Valentine singer-guitarist Bilinda Butcher. Those of you who missed the live-stream of JAMC’s performance can now watch the noise-pop crossover via the above fan-shot video. In the past, the Reid brothers have asked Hollywood actresses to sing backup on the Psychocandy classic — Scarlett Johansson and Megan Draper each had a turn (via Stereogum) — so it’s a welcome change to see a fellow icon from the U.K.’s distortion-heavy days deadpanning into the microphone.
