Alan McGee, who signed The Jesus & Mary Chain to their record deal, spoke exclusively to 6 Music about whether the rumours were indeed true:
"If ever a band wasn't given their just desserts it's The Jesus and Mary Chain. Without them there'd be no Stone Roses, no Oasis and no Libertines. The Jesus and Mary Chain reinvented rock 'n' roll in 1985 with their first album Psycho Candy. The bands that we all love in Britain were all inspired by The Jesus and Mary Chain whether they know it or not. It'd be great if they got back together they're an amazing group."
