Happy When It Rains vs. Only Happy When It Rains
« on: February 28, 2021, 04:37:33 AM »
Before it was Just Like Heaven vs. Just Like Honey. Now The Jesus and Mary Chain is squaring off again, this time against Garbage. Which one gets your vote?



I've gotta go with The Jesus and Mary Chain on this one. It's possibly my favorite song of the group's and captures a certain feeling so perfectly.

Interesting idea for a thread. I like both these bands. So it's a draw for me.

Garbage are very much as their name implies. TJAMC released one of the greatest rock n roll LPs ever made with Psychocandy then went shit. Therefore, although I think the song is crap, the Mary Chain song wins.

Very, very harsh.

They have good tunes that aren't on Psychocandy. Though I agree that Happy When It Rains isn't among their best.

I disagree.

They should have split up after Psychocandy. It was a pure Rock n roll statement. They did a couple of good times after like blues from a gun and reverence but mostly it was goth by numbers.

Garbage really are appalling.

I don't agree that The Jesus and Mary Chain were ever gothic. I've only taken glimpses at their post-Automatic work, but a move away from the noise pop of Psychocandy entailed a lighter alt-pop sound. And I think this style, especially on Darklands, hadn't really been done.

Automatic is a more straightforward record. Still, the lethargic vocals and only deceptively quick tempo of Head On, for example, are interesting takes.

Best thing J&MC ever did was to get their asses beat backstage by Ice Cube and The Lench Mob backstage at Lollapalooza '92. Garbage all the fuckin' way.
