Jesus & Mary Chain: Chapter, Verse and Worse

Biba Kopf, New Musical Express, 16 February 1985

Nine months in the making, the far from immaculately conceived Jesus And Mary Chain, from Glasgow, have alternately been heralded as new messiahs or dismissed as a bloody mess. In the gospel according to BIBA KOPF those alternatives are the flipsides of the same coin. So please welcome... the bloody messy messiahs!

Total word count of piece: 1980
