William and Jim Reid look back over the early years of The Jesus And Mary Chain in the new Uncut, dated December 2014 and out now.

As they prepare to perform Psychocandy in full to celebrate their debut’s 30th anniversary, the brothers discuss riotous gigs, startling records, leather trousers, animosities and a musical revolution born out of white noise.

“It is strange to be playing Psychocandy again,” William admits. “But hopefully we can do it justice. I want to make records and show people we’re not a ‘heritage act’. What a fucking horrible term!”

“I want to make an album this year,” he confirms. “Or two. We’re trying to get our shit together and hopefully it’ll happen.”

The new issue of Uncut is out now.
