Cat No: FC200CD

To celebrate the album’s 25-year anniversary, The Jesus And Mary Chain are reissuing their
long-sold-out sixth studio album ‘Munki’. Out October 6th 2023 on Fuzz Club, the reissue
arrives on CD and gatefold double LP. The vinyl has been remastered by Pete Maher (The
Rolling Stones, Jack White, Liam Gallagher). Originally released June 2nd 1998 on Sub Pop /
Creation Records, ‘Munki’ was – up until the Mary Chain’s reformation in 2007 – an
experimental rock’n’roll masterclass turned swan song for the Reid brothers, whose fractious
in-fighting culminated in the band’s break-up less than a year after its release. It was perhaps
fitting, then, that ‘Munki’ is argued by some as the definitive Mary Chain record in the way it
seemed to chart the full array of musical directions the band had ploughed over the five
records that came before.

The decision to bookend the album with Jim’s rousing sing-along ‘I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll’ and
William’s caustic white-noise anthem ‘I Hate Rock ‘N’ Roll’ perfectly captures the two-fold
tension at the heart of the Mary Chain at that time – a tension between noise and melody,
and warring brothers. Across the album’s 17 tracks and 70-minute running time, there are the
expected abrasive noise-rock epics ‘Cracking Up’ and ‘Degenerate’ by way of fuzzed-out
pop hits like ‘Fizzy’ and the tender acoustic slow-burner ‘Never Understood’. Between the
Reid’s Glaswegian snarls and unapologetically insolent lyrics – “I’m a mean motherf*cker
now, but I once was cool”, “McDonald’s is sh*t!”, “Children are fools!” being just a few lyrical
highlights – ‘Munki’ also features two great guest appearances. Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval
returns for another Mary Chain duet on ‘Perfume’, which has a swagger that’s equal parts
menacing and bittersweet, and the Reid’s younger sister Linda (Sister Vanilla) sings
beautifully on top of ‘Moe Tucker’s motorik proto-punk scuzz.
