Originally due out last October, “Barbed Wire Kisses” — a 272-page biography of The Jesus and Mary Chain by music journalist and author Zoë Howe — is now set to be published in the U.S. and U.K. on May 19, but the paperback will be available a full month early, on Record Store Day, in the U.K.
The story of The Jesus and Mary Chain — famous for 15-minute concerts and marrying squalling guitar noise with sweet ’60s pop on their iconic 1985 debut Psychocandy — will be told in “Barbed Wire Kisses: The Jesus and Mary Chain Story,” an biography due in October.
