In November 2014, the Jesus and Mary Chain played their first live show in six years, a homecoming performance at the Barrowlands venue in Glasgow, Scotland. The gig included the entirety of the band’s iconic 1985 debut Psychocandy, and also a handful of the band’s other most beloved songs. The Psychocandy set is being issued on LP and CD next month as Live at Barrowlands, with the deluxe edition also including a seven-track prequel set of the other songs played.
One of those non-Psychocandy cuts was the noise-pop/indie-dance hybrid single “Reverence,” the opening track on 1992’s underrated Honey’s Dead and the group’s second and last U.K. top ten hit. The awesome live version lengthens the original song by nearly three minutes, adding an extended intro, drum breakdown and rave-up outro, taking the already decently psychedelic jam straight into the fifth dimension.
Listen here, and check out Live at Barrowlands this July 31, on Demon Records & Edsel.
