Nuovo album per i Jesus And Mary Chain?

Il loro ultimo lavoro di inediti risale al 1998, ma il seguito di quel Munki i Jesus And Mary Chain lo promettono ogni tot di anni senza aver mai dato seguito alle parole. Adesso, però, qualcosa sembra muoversi: innanzitutto i fratelli Reid sono attualmente in tour, quello imbastito per celebrare il trentennale del loro capolavoro Psychocandy. In secondo luogo, Jim Reid durante un’intervista concessa a NME ha parlato della possibilità – in accordo col fratello William – di realizzare un nuovo album, il primo dalla reunion ufficiale avvenuta nel 2007. Qui di seguito le dichiarazioni principali di Jim Reid:

We’ve got the material, we’ve talked about doing an album for so long now. We got back together in 2007 and it was the plan then. We thought ‘We’ve got a bunch of songs, this would make a pretty good Mary Chain album’ – and then there was the usual slaps and scratches between my brother and myself. ‘I wanna do it here’ and ‘I don’t’ and then it was all ‘Fuck you’ and swinging at each other. The usual shit basically.

We are kind of coming round to being in agreement, which is a bit weird for us. There will be an album – we will get it together. I’m more convinced now than I ever have been that there will be a new Mary Chain album.

We couldn’t agree how to approach the songs. At the time when the band got back together my kids were very young and William lives in LA and wanted to record out there, and I didn’t want to go and spend months away from my family. But my kids are a bit older now and I’m kind of in the middle of a divorce, so it seems like a good time to get the hell out of town.

Non ci resta che sperare. Nel frattempo riascoltiamo un brano cui non servono presentazioni:
