Some Candy Talking is an extended play by the Scottish rock band The Jesus & Mary Chain, released in 1986. Its track listing included “Taste of Cindy”, a song from their first album, Psychocandy performed acoustically, and a song entitled “Psychocandy”, which did not appear on that album. The title track is commonly misunderstood as being about heroin use. In a 2005 interview with Jim Reid (lead singer) featured in Filter Magazine, Reid noted that: ‘”Some Candy Talking” had nothing to do with drugs, actually. It was just something a radio DJ picked up on, and it was banned in all the major radio stations in the UK.’ Though that images of poppy flowers are featured in the video for the single, seeming to imply that the song is indeed about heroin. The song was originally banned for this reason by BBC Radio 1 DJ Mike Smith, although it was later voted at no. 9 in that year’s John Peel Festive fifty. The song was included in the soundtrack to the 1986 film Modern Girls. The EP marked the final release that drummer Bobby Gillespie appeared on. After this release he returned to his own band, Primal Scream.
