Psycho Candy tour 2015...who isn't excited? The Jesus & Mary Chain returned this Monday for a 2 week tour of the UK and so has been the hype that 4 extra dates in London, Manchester and Glasgow have already been added. Originally supporting the Scottish alternative rockers were Eagulls, fresh from releasing their 2014 debut album. A perfect match. Grunge guitars, thrashy chord progressions and harmonic melodies. They could both be from the 80's. Sadly no more. Eagulls have pulled out due to "other commitments".
So instead the JMC announced that they were looking for local acts to support on each day of their tour. What a fantastic opportunity. Well, kind of. It appears that several of the support acts hail from 359 Music, a label belonging to Alan McGee! Is this a conflict of interests, McGee? Or have you just hit on another golden generation of alternative music? Regardless, Third Outing wish all of the support good luck, live review from The Jesus & Mary Chain at the Corn Exchange, Edinburgh, next week.
