The Jesus and Mary Chain's swooning debut Psychocandy seared through the underground and to the top of the pop charts, shifting the role of noise within pop music forever. Post-punk and pro-confusion, Psychocandy became the sound of a generation poised on the brink of revolution, establishing Creation Records as a taste making entity in the process. The Scottish band's notorious live performances were both punishingly loud and riot-spurring, simultaneously acting as socio-political commentary on tensions emergent in mid-1980s Britain. Through caustic clangs and feedback channeling the rage of the working-class generation who'd had enough, Psychocandy gestures toward the perverse pleasure in having your eardrums exploded and loudness as a politics within itself--not unlike the S&M pleasure of noisecore.

Yet Psychocandy's blackened candy heart center - calling out to phantoms Candy and Honey with an unsettling charm and feminist bent - makes it a pop record to the core, not unlike The Ronettes late '60s croons. Drawing from the sweetness of '60s girl groups, The Stooges' masochistic stage antics and Lou Reed's feedback-laced guitar swells, The Jesus and Mary Chain expertly carved out a place where depravity and sweetness entwined, emerging from the isolating underground of suburban Scotland grasping the distinct sound of a generation, apathetic and uncertain. The record's cult popularity became embedded within the sacred canon of pop music. The irresistible Psychocandy emerged as a clairvoyant account of pop mastery that still causes us to grapple with pop's relation to ourselves.
