To celebrate the album’s 25-year anniversary, The Jesus And Mary Chain are today announcing a reissue of their long-sold-out sixth studio album, Munki. Out October 20th 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.

Watch the video for the Jesus & Mary Chain’s “I Love Rock’n’Roll” below, followed by album ordering info, and upcoming tour dates.

The special 180g splatter vinyl edition of Munki is available exclusively from the Mary Chain and Fuzz Club stores, where there’s also a bundle discount if you pick up both the vinyl and CD. For more information, visit
