21 gigs you should have been at

The Jesus And Mary Chain. Where: North London Polytechnic, London When: March 15, 1985 Why it was great: It was the culmination of all they promised to be: a sublimely chaotic mess that bordered on the obscene but was utterly compelling. The combination of no venue security, high praise in music weeklies and hostile support acts meant the crowd was baying for blood.
