A colourful history with rioting at gigs after only playing feedback for half an hour, the famous Bobby Gillespie standing drumming technique and sibling fights that make the Gallagher brothers' arguments look pathetic.
The first Mary Chain album I brought was Automatic. This was more of a rock album but still my favourite. It is a real mixed bag and more aggressive than Darklands. It is very brawling and black leather. Towering riffs that create a driving album Coast to Coast and Head On (covered by The Pixies) are exceptional.
