Among My Swan was the third album from the magnificent !

We’ve already posted lots more Mazzy

Another wonderful work! This one also features contributions from William Reid of the mighty !

Although Among My Swan did not contain any US Billboard Hot 100 hits like its predecessor, So Tonight That I Might See, this album did garner the band its highest-ranking single on the UK Singles Chart, when “Flowers In December” reached #40 in November 1996. However, the album’s second single, “I’ve Been Let Down”, did not chart in either the United States or the UK.

Among My Swan relied less on the echo effect that was ubiquitous across the previous two albums. Hope Sandoval’s voice is paired with simple acoustic instrumentation that marks most of the tracks. The guitar and harmonica accompaniment on “I’ve Been Let Down” is a prime example of this. These tracks are not markedly different in sound or feel from the preceding two albums.

Among My Swan is considered Mazzy Star’s final album. Although the band has not officially broken up, they have released no new material since the release of “I’ve Been Let Down” as a single in 1996, and lead singer Hope Sandoval has gone on to form Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions, which released an album in 2001.

Awwww …. Hope Sandoval …. the sexiest female to ever stroke a guitar!

The Jesus and Mary Chain – The Power of Negative Thinking:
B-Sides & Rarities (2008 BOX)

From a group that blew our little mind back, and who we obsessed about back in the eighties with their wonderful raucous cacophonous sound which seemed to come from nowhere, the marvellous JAMC.

They opened new music worlds to us that led us to explore the influences on their sound, most prominently The Velvets, but also various punk bands – Stooges, Ramones, Television etc – and the avant-garde scene – John Cage etc. Not forgetting pure pop such as the Beachboys etc.

They in turn would go onto inspire wonderful groups such as the Pixies, Nirvana, Mazzy Star and countless more.

Here we get a trmendous collection of 80 chronologically ordered tracks!

http://www.myspace.com/thejesu…..desandmore
http://www.thejesusandmarychain.org/

In addition to being one of the U.K.’s most influential alternative rock bands, The Jesus And Mary Chain were also among the most prolific. Along with their five landmark Blanco y Negro albums (all recently remastered and reissued by Rhino), the band produced a steady stream of inspired non-LP material, now compiled in one sonically walloping 4-CD boxed set, Rhino/Warner’s THE POWER OF NEGATIVE THINKING: B-SIDES & RARITIES.

Presenting 80 chronologically ordered tracks, the box writes a parallel history of The Jesus And Mary Chain, covering every phase of the group’s history from their 1984 debut single for Creation Records (“Upside Down” b/w “Vegetable Man”) to their final Sub Pop releases in 1998.

The project was produced in cooperation with JAMC founders Jim and William Reid. Packaged in a 63 x 103 gatefold shell, the new four-disc set includes fresh interviews with the Reid brothers, rare photos and an 183 x 243 double-sided poster featuring a hand-drawn “family tree” tracing JAMC’s evolving lineups on one side and artwork from many of the band’s singles on the other.

B-SIDES & RARITIES builds on the 1988 compilation Barbed Wire Kisses, which was comprised of 20 obscure tracks; all but one of those recordings is included on the new box, which also features hard-to-find cuts from their post 1988 output and eight never-before-heard sides. This massive noise-pop bounty blends non-album tracks revealing some of the band’s most fascinating work, including demo and acoustic versions of well-known favorites, oddball covers, revelatory Reid originals and more.

The box opens with the discovery “Up Too High,” a Darklands-esque song Jim and William committed to cassette in 1983. Other previously unreleased recordings include an alternate version of “Never Understand,” demos of “My Little Underground” and “The Living End” and the unheard song “Walk And Crawl” (all circa Psychocandy), as well as a trio of Stoned And Dethroned-era recordings: an alternate take of “Coast To Coast,” a demo of “Dirty Water” and the lost song “Till I Found You.”

The Jesus And Mary Chain remain one of the most important U.K. bands of the last quarter century. Formed in East Kilbride, Scotland in 1983, the group created a new intersection of noise and pop, draping curtains of guitar feedback over melodies worthy of The Ronettes or The Beach Boys.

In listing JAMC’s 1985 debut Psychocandy among its “500 Greatest Albums Of All Time,” Rolling Stone called the work, “a decadent alt-rock masterpiece of bubblegum pop…drowned in feedback.”

With brothers Jim and William Reid as its, JAMC went on to influence countless alt-rockers to come.

After disbanding in 1998, JAMC re-emerged at 2007’s Coachella Music & Arts Festival. They subsequently embarked on a world tour, and a new album is in the works.

The Jesus And Mary Chain – Barbed Wire Kisses (1988) @VBR

The Jesus And Mary Chain – Barbed Wire Kisses (1988) @VBR

Just a few years into their official recording career, the Jesus and Mary Chain had enough B-sides, outtakes, and other things sitting around to warrant a collection of nearly all of them, thus Barbed Wire Kisses.

A welcome inclusion is the original debut single on Creation, “Upside Down,” which in terms of the mix alone makes Psychocandy sound like Boston. Unfortunately the flip side cover of the Pink Floyd rarity “Vegetable Man” doesn’t make it, but obvious inspirations the Beach Boys get saluted twice, once through a heavily thrashed-up cover of “Surfin’ USA” that’s pure Psychocandy in fidelity and impact, then again through a hilarious parody.

“Kill Surf City” is pure Brian Wilson circa 1963 in melody, but the lyrics are something else again — death, doom, destruction, and a bit of love here and there — and the end result is a truly nutty combination.

Another double tribute is given to Bo Diddley; his “Who Do You Love” becomes a low, menacing lope, echo cranked up high, while “Bo Diddley Is Jesus” just about says it all in the title, while of all bands, Can gets a nod via a cool live cover of “Mushroom.”

A single came with the whole thing as well, “Sidewalking,” one of the band’s best yet. Taking a T. Rex-styled glam strut and running it through their trademark clang’n’scrape feedback wringer, it’s a monstrous track, the best song from the group since their Psychocandy days.

A large number of tracks essentially continue the Psychocandy aesthetic without adding much to it, though those not entirely taken with Darklands will find much to love with the likes of “Head” and “Cracked.” Meanwhile, two alternate versions of album cuts — an acoustic take on “Taste of Cindy” and a neat demo take of “On the Wall” — add to the fun.
