On the telly: Watch The Jesus and Mary Chain and Sky Ferreira team up on Colbert

Watch The Jesus and Mary Chain and Sky Ferreira team up on Colbert

They collaborated on ‘Damage and Joy’ cut ‘The Two Of Us’.

“Just the two of us… We can make it if we try”. Except in this case three isn’t a crowd, and the Reid brothers brought along a special guest for their performance on Colbert.

The Mary Chain have been pretty extensively promoting their new album ‘Damage and Joy’ since it came out in March, and while they’re currently on tour they found the time to do a little appearance on American telly. For the scuzzy performance of ‘The Two of Us’, they brought along Sky Ferreira, for a storming duet. Talk about a dream team!
