The Jesus and Mary Chain got the band back together last night at the "Coachella Secret Show" in front of a capacity crowd at the Glass House in Pomona. This was their first live show since they broke up at the end of their infamous appearance at the (aptly named) House of Blues on the Sunset Strip in 1998.

Last night the Reid Brothers started off rocky, kept it slow, and seemed generally disinterested to be there. Or perhaps they were still pissed off at Rock for not delivering them all the riches they so deserve.

Singer Jim Reid seemed pissed off. Maybe he's always like that. Who knows? But after they had played a few songs he asked the crowd, "Happy we're back?" Which of course got a huge cheer. He replied, "fuck off" and looked at the drummer.
