The Jesus and Mary Chain

Brighton Dome – 23rd February 2015

30 years old now

I have never been to a ‘reversed’ gig before… How many bands play the encore before the main set?!

Well, that is exactly what the ‘Mary Chain’ did last night. 

Taking the stage, they announced that they would do a short initial set, followed by the whole of the Psycho Candy album. 

Opening with April Skies, closely followed by Head On (as covered by Pixies), and then on through Some Candy Talking. 

Sure, it got the crowd going from the off, but I can’t help but think gigs should build towards the ‘classics’. 

Judging by the amount of people leaving before the end, maybe I wasn’t the only one. 

Good night out, but just a little odd.
