Reviews

'This Mary Chain book is a million times better than the Morrissey autobiography'

-- @drphunkneuro

'Highly recommend @zoehowe's JAMC bio. A touching story of kids in the music business, recalled by their adult selves. a cut above the usual'

-- Euan McColm

'The best band in the world'

-- Neil Taylor * NME *

'Pretty Scottish boys surfing a wave of doom and gloom and enjoying every moment of it. The Jesus and Mary Chain's debut is a decadent alt rock masterpiece of bubblegum pop'

* Rolling Stone (naming the band's debut album one of the 500 best albums of all time) *

'Thoroughly enjoying 'Barbed Wire Kisses'. Great anecdotes & teenage memories' - Vic Galloway 'I just finished the Mary Chain book 'Barbed Wire Kisses'. It's f***ing brilliant. Get it read people'

-- Stuart Braithwaite * Mogwai *

'Barbed Wire Kisses adroitly charts the Mary Chain's career from their pre-Creation Portastudio demos through to their alcohol-fuelled implosion on 1998's ill-fated Munki tour [ - ] It's engaging throughout, but the chapters on the myth-making early years [ - ] leap especially vigorously off the page'

* Record Collector *

'One of my favourite authors writing about one of my favourite bands, wonderful!'

-- Den Browne

'Bunking the biographical trend, pleasingly filled more with anecdotes than footnotes'

* The Quietus *
