“Laughing here while listening to the 9:30 performance from December 8, 1985. Those elfin twerps from Jesus and Mary Chain were so livid that they locked us out of the dressing room – as if we could have given half a shit. Really, the best intro to any show, ever – Jared slicing up his guitar case and bearing down on the strings with an electric razor, Rogelio doubling and tripling with his wah-wah cello, me manipulating Led Zep‘s “Since I’ve Been Loving You,” and Jon Spencer soloing during the breaks at several levels of fetid mania above the Reid brothers‘ capabilities. (And, unfortunately, for a minute or so, an idiot at the mixing desk bellowing into the house mic to make light of it all.) I‘m amazed we pulled it off without police interference. When we did our Mary Chain manip, holy fuck. The spittle hit the sporran!” – Tom Smith (28 December 2017)
