It’s been almost 34 years since Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” first hit the airwaves, forever changing our expectations of what a music video could be. It cost a record-setting $500,000, sold more than 9 million units (yes, people used to actually buy music videos), won big at both the Grammys and MTV Video Music Awards, and is now a Halloween classic. But when it debuted on MTV in 1983, no one knew just how lasting an impact it would have on pop culture.

Any fan of Goth music — or even simply alternative rock in general — is familiar with what is probably the genre’s most famous cornerstone, the iconic English quartet Bauhaus, which created an entire theatrical/musical movement over four years before disbanding in 1983 and metamorphosing into the hitmaking trio Love and Rockets. Consisting of Bauhaus’s Daniel Ash and Kevin Haskins, plus art-school friend Glenn Campling, Tones on Tail put out merely one full-length album and did one tour before disbanding in 1984.
The influential Reid brothers’ seventh album, produced by Youth, will be their first since 1998’s Munki. When the Jesus and Mary Chain — who headline night one of Los Angeles’s Gothic Cloak & Dagger festival this coming weekend — emerged from East Kilbride, Scotland, in 1983, they concocted a visionary, fuzzed-out blend of jaded/sedated vocals, hook-filled melodies, and bristly feedback that was at least a decade ahead of its time. The oceanic wash of effects-laden guitar noise that William Reid coaxed from his instrument on their groundbreaking debut album, Psychocandy, was used as a blueprint by countless bands.
