THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN Released Sixth Album ‘MUNKI’ 20 Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

1 June 2018

Band: THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN

Album: MUNKI

Released: 2 June 1998 – 20 years ago

ALL MUSIC wrote: “As befits an album bookended by tracks titled “I Love Rock’n’Roll” and “I Hate Rock’n’Roll,” the Jesus and Mary Chain’s Sub Pop label debut, Munki, is schizophrenic and impassioned, a record that both summarizes the band’s career to date and cleans the slate for their future. Virtually each of the 17 tracks here echoes a prior moment in the Chain’s existence, moving at breakneck pace from the volcanic noise of their earliest material to the bleak grace of Darklands, through to the sleek, supercharged pop of Automatic.”

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: Munki sounds like a career-spanning jukebox. An avalanche
of barbed wire pop crackers.
