Note that the album release has moved back slightly to March 22nd due to a delay in vinyl production.

“Girl 71” is about redemption from self-loathing through others and features Jim Reid on lead vocal with backing harmonies courtesy of Rachel Conte. As with the rest of the Glasgow Eyes album, “Girl 71” was produced by brothers Jim and William Reid at Mogwai’s Castle of Doom studio.

The Jesus and Mary Chain’s extensive 40th anniversary headline tour of the UK, Ireland and Europe has just been boosted with confirmation of special guests Aircooled (featuring JAMC drummer Justin Welch).

Here are the two previous singles.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
