When in the 80´s the Reid brothers founded The Jesus and Mary Chain, probably had no idea what awaited them. Being one of the most emblematic bands of the Rock N Roll of all times, The Jesus and Mary Chain was a mixture of the best blues, bubblegum pop of the 50´s, the loud noise of the Velvet Underground, and the sweet lyrics of the Beach Boys, with an extreme and dirty attitude like the Cramps. With this elaborate package of references, Jesus and Mary Chain conquered all communication means, being the Rock N Roll revelation of the 80´s. Creation Records adopted them and became one of the most important labels of the 90´s.
While the excesses of the Reid brothers were memorable including fights on stage, aggression to fans during the concerts, the typical sex-drugs-rock n roll that normally this type of bands experience was enforced when giving provocative interviews in which they made fun of both the audience for consider them “stupid and ignorant”, and the very English pop dandy Morrissey, his music always prevailed and proved to be the most important fuel for all that downloading image and attitude that always broke out in a favorable way . There is an urban legend that says the Reid brothers, went to a studio and met Iggy Pop and Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols, and simply starting punching them for destroying the true roots of Rock N Roll …
The truth is that the importance of Jesus and Mary Chain is essential to understand the dynamics of other “terrible brothers” of the Rock. The Gallagher brothers, Liam and Nolan, who between punches, cocaine, anorexic models and some good Rock N Roll, earned a huge amount of fans during the 90´s and 2000, people who were hungry for easier and honest music. The fights between these two brothers have been recorded since the start of the effervescent Oasis, and the separation of the band is a testimony that Liam and Nolan, for sometime weren’t very good friends. Oasis doesn’t exist anymore.
However, back when the world was “Oasis vs. Blur,” Gallagher brothers could full stadiums, arenas and theaters, becoming, against all odds, in a band that created mass excitement and brotherhood, with hymns as “Live Forever “” Wonderwall “and” Do not Look Back in Anger “. Ah yes, they also took possession of the Beatles and David Bowie without shame. Good for them. The new album of Noel Gallagher keeps the nostalgia and warmth of Oasis.
