JaMC Reissued

PsychocandyOddly enough, while at The Gap this weekend, they were playing "Head On" by The Jesus and Mary Chain. Definitely haven't heard much about this band in a while, but they're always worth looking up to see if they're doing anything interesting. You can't beat a band that plays with its back to the audience.

Imagine my surprise when I discovered that as of tomorrow their catalog is to be re-released in the DualDisc format. The flipside is theoretically going to be in high resolution stereo, but I guess until someone in the know takes a closer look, we won't know whether it's real (i.e. DVD-Audio format a la nin's with teeth) or lame (like the DualDisc of Priest's Angel of Retribution).

Regardless, these albums have been out of print for some time here in the USA, so it's nice to see them available again, even if the CD side is remastered (i.e. will sound like ass). As for the DualDisc side: hopefully the irony of The Jesus and Mary Chain being released on any type of theoretically higher quality recording won't be lost on their fans.
