Notoriously fractious brothers William and Jim Reid led JAMC to become pioneers of the post-punk notion. Like mad scientists, the two shy lads from the outskirts of Glasgow would concoct formulas of noisy, effects-driven scores to accompany lyrics of angst and discontent.
Maybe it wasn’t so mad after all. The band’s unique sound would make them a crucial part of any nutritious musical diet, with later groups including Nirvana and My Bloody Valentine tipping their hat to the incredible outputs of the Brothers Reid and cohorts.
