The Gun Club's 'Mother Juno' Treated to Deluxe Vinyl Reissue
Published Jul 15, 2014The Gun Club's album Mother Juno has been remastered for a couple of CD reissues over the years, but it hasn't been pressed on vinyl since its original release in 1987. That will change on October 14 when Bang! Records issues Mother Juno on vinyl.
Recorded in Berlin, the album was produced by Robin Guthrie of Cocteau Twins. This remastered pressing includes the bonus cuts "Crab Dance" and "Nobody's City," which appeared on a 2005 CD reissue but weren't on the original vinyl edition. (Iggy Pop recently released a star-studded cover of the latter tune.) The reissue also comes packaged in a deluxe gatefold sleeve.
According to an announcement, "Mother Juno meant the evolution of sound at the Gun Club's discography, entering into musical adventures where Jeffrey Lee Pierce and Kid Congo Powers mixed their guitars and melodies as per Television and Jimi Hendrix."
