Cult indie legends return to Hong Kong

We’re delighted to make the next announcement in the ‘Clockenflap Presents’ series, as we welcome The Jesus and Mary Chain back to Hong Kong for an intimate show at KITEC Music Zone on May 28.

Formed in East Kilbride Scotland in 1983 around the writing partnership of brothers William and Jim Reid, the duo moved to London before Bobbie Gillespie (Primal Scream) joined on drums and they attracted the attentions of original manager Alan McGee (Creation Records). Quickly earning a riotous reputation on stage, their seminal 1985 debut album ‘Psychocandy’ would go on to change the course of popular music, channeling the sneering angst and noise distortion of their live shows into hypnotic sweet melodies layered with dark lyrics that would beguile and bewilder. It is a sound which developed across albums ‘Darklands’ (1987), ‘Automatic’ (1989) and ‘Honey’s Dead’ (1992). By 1994 the album ‘Stoned & Dethroned’ was released with the single ‘Sometimes Always’ featuring Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval giving the band a bonafide commercial hit. Four years on and ‘Munki’ dropped in 1998, released by Seattle’s Sub Pop (original home of Nirvana, who were huge fans of the band.)

A succession of well documented break ups, fueled by brotherly love and internal tensions followed, as William took up residence in Los Angeles and Jim returned to the UK. The brothers came together in 2007 to perform at Coachella Music Festival, to be joined on stage by Scarlett Johansson, for their “Just Like Honey” hit (as featured in ‘Lost In Translation’), before fans were finally treated to new JAMC LP ‘Damage and Joy’ produced by Youth and released in March 2017.

Throughout their career, few bands have had such a huge effect on musical culture, and local HK fans can look forward to their highly-anticipated return on May 28. Tickets go on sale **** at 10am from Ticketflap, and due to the intimate venue capacity, we recommend fans don’t delay as this show promises to be a very special occasion indeed!
