JESUS & MARY CHAIN

At Ziggies, Plymouth, February 1985

More scene and previously unscene photos from “A Scene In Between”.
Taken by west country scenesters James Finch and Val Hicks, these cool and candid shots capture the young JAMC at their feedbackiest wall of noiziest peak.

Taken at Ziggies nightclub in Plymouth during the soundcheck and throughout a twenty minute session of chaotic earslaughter plus crushed melodies. Indie fashion historians will revel in the astute sinister black leather clad sartorial delights of the bands Velvets ’66 via Hamburg era Fab 4, plus 76-78 Subway Sect-isms.

Esoteric mods in leather box jackets, stripy t’s, manky cable cardigans all crowned with big fuzzy barnets. Apart from Bobby of course who purveyed moppish early 60’s art school beat chic and was soon to become a style icon in his own right. Thanks to Sam Knee for photos.
