Jesus and Mary Chain reissuing all 6 albums this fall in deluxe 2CD/1DVD editions

 

Each of the six studio albums Scottish noise-pop legends The Jesus and Mary Chain released between 1985 and 1998 will be reissued this fall in expanded 2CD/1DVD packages that include B-sides, live sessions, TV appearances and rare material such as rejected early B-side “Jesus Fuck” and a newly discovered recording of “Darklands” with an added string section.

The reissue series — by the Edsel imprint of the UK-based Demon Music Group, which put out last year’s Upside Down: The Best Of collection — begins Sept. 19 with the re-release of 1985′s Psychocandy and 1987′s Darklands. Although Demon only has announced those two, Amazon.co.uk shows expanded reissues of 1989′s Automatic and 1992′s Honey’s Dead following on Sept. 26, and 1994′s Stoned & Dethroned and 1998′s Munki on Oct. 3.

The Psychocandy reissue features the original album and 30 bonus tracks, including all of the corresponding singles’ B-sides, previously unreleased demos, rare outtakes, the band’s 1985 acoustic John Peel session and the original rejected version of controversial track “Jesus Fuck,” intended as an early B-side. The DVD features music videos and live performances on “Old Grey Whistle Test,” “The Tube” and more.

Similarly, the expanded Darklands adds 30 bonus tracks to the original album, including non-album B-sides, outtakes, the Some Candy Talking EP, a long-sought 1986 Janice Long session, an alternate version of “Some Candy Talking” and a “recently unearthed” version of the title track with strings. The DVD includes promo videos, a band-made film for “Kill Surf City,” a “Top of the Pops” performance and more.

Both reissues also include 32-page booklets with new interviews “that tell the band’s story in their own words,” according to the label’s promo material, including contributions from former drummer and current Primal Scream leader Bobby Gillespe.

Demon Music Group has not released tracklists for the other four reissues.

Except for Munki, which originally was released on Sub Pop Records, the Jesus and Mary Chain’s catalog was reissued by Rhino Records in 2006 on the short-lived DualDisc format with very little bonus content aside from videos. That label also released the four-disc The Power of Negative Thinking: B-Sides & Rarities box set in 2008.

UPDATE 7/6/11: Demon Music Group has now released the tracklists for the other four Jesus and Mary Chain reissues, and each is similarly packed with bonus B-sides, BBC radio sessions, alternate takes, live cuts and videos.
