    Born in Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom
    Core members:
    Jim Reid (December 29, 1961- ), lead vocals
    William Reid (October 28, 1958- ), guitar
    Recorded the albums 'Psychocandy' (1985), 'Darklands' (1987), 'Automatic' (1989), 'Honey's Dead' (1992), 'Stoned & Dethroned' (1994) and 'Munki' (1998)
    They had a revolving-door line-up, with the Reid brothers as the only constant.
    They abused LSD and amphetamines.
    Early gigs were often as short as 10 minutes and frequently ended with the audience rioting.
    The release of their third single, 'You Trip Me Up,' was delayed when employees at the WEA pressing plant refused to handle the record because they considered the B-side, 'Jesus Suck,' blasphemous.
    Jim Reid spent a night in jail in Toronto after striking two fans with his mic stand (1987).
    Anthony Kiedis said of the 2nd Lollapalooza tour (1992), 'The whole show was a lovefest except for the Jesus and Mary Chain, who were just bitter.'
    The band broke up after William Reid walked offstage in the middle of a show at the House of Blues.
    Jim Reid complained, 'They write encyclopedias on the Eighties and we're not even mentioned. We WERE the fucking Eighties.'
