The Jesus and Mary Chain resurrected
Jim Reid zone-rocks out

According to early word, set lists have included tracks from the band's 21 Singles collection (Rhino, 2002), which seems equally sensational and innocuous. Is the Mary Chain cashing in on the latest wave of rock nostalgia or is there still a violence simmering in the Reids that snakes like the whine of William's fuzz box? If they promise to dust off "Kill Surf City," all will be forgiven. Amen. *
