Song Notes: This is the single mix of The Pixies' cover of Jesus & Mary Chain's song from Automatic. I don't really have a whole lot to add here since I don't think I really need to tell anyone about The Pixies, but I just wanted to say that I thought Jesus & Mary Chain had a cool band name because it plays with the "Foo And The Bar" convention; you assume the band to be some guy called "The Jesus" (perhaps a bowling-ball licking pederast?) and someone named Mary Chain, until you sit and think about it and realize that it's a "Jesus and Mary" chain; it's kind of funny the way people say the band, putting the emphasis on "Chain" like it's someone's last name, instead of on "Jesus and Mary", since that's the descriptor of the chain. (I do this all the time.) I have been in a couple arguments of The Pixies versus Jesus & Mary Chain, since they both do similar sounding music (for the record, I come on the Pixies' side), but they're both pretty cool bands, and this is a really awesome song. - Rev.
