The Jesus and Mary Chain
The two Reid brothers got inspired to form their own band in the year 1977 due to their love for bands such as Sex Pistols, perhaps one of the most popular alternative rock bands of the 1970s. Though they wanted to create a band in the year 1977, it wasn’t until the year 1980 that they became an official band. At the time of its formation, the band was originally called The Poppy Seeds and then the name was changed to Death of Joey after which the band’s name was finally changed to The Jesus and Mary Chain. When asked why they chose this particular name, the brothers said that they read this offer of winning a Jesus and Mary chain made out of gold on a cereal box and that’s how the name came about.
By the year 1983, the band started writing their own songs and producing their records which they regularly sent to label companies. This was after they added two additional members to their band; Murray Dalglish playing drums and Douglas Hart on bass. Their early singles and records show major musical influences by The Stooges, The Velvet Underground and The Shangri-Las. Over the next few years, the band tried to get a hold of gigs and attain at least some attention from label companies. However, they were unable to do so and decided to move to the great city of London to try their luck as a band. It was there that the band experienced a change of luck and was able to sign with a recording company.

Although after a few enraged performances that led to violence and riots the band was banned from performing at concerts, the band was able to sign a deal with Blanco y Negro records in the year 1985 after which they released their debut single named “Never Understand”.
