Playing tracks by
Dusty Springfield, Johnny cash, The rolling stones and The Birthday Party.
Interview with Jim Reid of The Jesus & Mary Chain.
From the liner notes of the recent DARKLANDS reissue:
“In February 1986 Jim was interviewed on BBC Radio 1 by Janice Long about music that had influenced The Jesus and Mary Chain and some of his favourite songs at the time. Here’s what he played:
Dusty Springfield - Give Me Some of Your Lovin’
The Stooges - I Wanna Be Your Dog
Johnny Cash - Folsom Prison Blues
The Rolling Stones - 19th Nervous Breakdown
The Birthday Party - Kiss Me Black
Sonny & Cher - Just You
Bob Dylan - Just Like a Woman”
This is the interview, straight from an old cassette I found in the attic. It had the Bob Dylan track edited out already (probably to fit it on one side of a tape)
