Want to be as cool as the Jesus and Mary Chain? That's probably impossible (sorry), but you can at least listen to the same music as them thanks to a mix by ex-drummer Bobby Gillespie (1985-86) and ex-bassist Douglas Hart (1984-91, which comes courtesy of Demon Music Group.
This The Way We Were: 1980-85 mix includes 20 songs and is said to approximate the mixtapes that the band listened to in their early days. It features tracks by artists like the Ronettes, Soft Cell, the Cramps, Magazine, Public Image Ltd, and more. Like we said, cool. Take a listen below.
