The Jesus and Mary Chain Celebrate 30th Anniversary With Deluxe Vinyl Box Set

If the expanded CD/DVD reissues of the Jesus and Mary Chain catalog a few years back left something to be desired—namely some proper vinyl pressings—Demon Music Group have you covered this December. That’s when the label plans on spreading the band’s entire catalog across 11 LPs. Here’s the breakdown of the box set to get for all your hair-teasing, feedback-worshipping friends this holiday season, via Slicing Up Eyeballs:

  • The Mary Chain’s original studio albums—1985’s Psychocandy, 1987’s Darklands, 1989’sAutomatic, 1992’s Honey’s Dead, 1994’s Stoned & Dethroned and 1998’s Munki—each remastered at half speed from the original tapes and pressed to heavyweight vinyl
  • A BBC live compilation, which appears, based on cover art, to be the 2003 release Live in Concert—recorded in 1992 and 1995—possibly spread over two LPs, although it’s not specified
  • A collection of “all” of the band’s BBC studio sessions “housed together on vinyl for the first time” over two LPs, which appears, based on the cover art seen in the promotional video, to be different than the 2000 CD release The Complete John Peel Sessions
  • A “fan-selected” LP filled with B-sides and rarities
  • A 32-page hardback book with interviews and photographs
