The Jesus and Mary Chain – Munki – Limited Red and Blue Double Vinyl, Reissue, Cooking Vinyl, 2023

“Munki” is the sixth studio album by the Scottish alternative rock band The Jesus and Mary Chain. It was originally released on June 9, 1998. The album marked their return after a lengthy hiatus and featured a mix of their trademark noise-pop sound and more melodic tracks.

“I Hate Rock ‘n’ Roll” is also notable for its confrontational lyrics, addressing the band’s relationship with the music industry.

The release of “Munki” is significant because it was the band’s first album in eight years and their last before another extended break. While not as commercially successful as some of their earlier work, the album showcased the band’s continued evolution and experimentation with their distinctive noise-pop sound. It remains an essential part of The Jesus and Mary Chain’s discography and a testament to their enduring influence in the alternative music scene.
