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.
