Indie legends the Jesus and Mary Chain have confirmed two concerts in Tel Aviv this October!
The band, namely the brothers William and Jim Reid and famous for some stirring indie anthems including Just Like Honey, April Skies and Far Gone and Out, will be performing at the Barby Club in Tel Aviv on October 18 and 19.
Tickets are priced at between 199-229 shekels, call 03-5188123 for more information.
The band were famed for the violence and drugs that followed their tours, and although initially they did their bit to promote themselves as wild and violent too, they later denounced the violence. They were also named at one point by renowned music mag NME as “the best band in the world”! They split up in 1999, but reunited in 2007.
Here’s the scene from the awesome Lost in Translation movie, which ends with Bill Murray and Scarlet Johansson parting ways to Just Like Honey…a magical movie movement if ever there was one! And yes, Scarlet Johansson has even been up on stage with the boys performing this classic, so who knows, maybe a surprise appearance…?
And here they are in their prime, with one of our all-time faves…
