MONA MUR '88 RCA LP Re-released on PLAYLOUD !
Pre-Order here: www.playloud.org/archiveandstore/en/vinyl-12/747-mona-mur-mona-mur.html

In summer 1987, I met legendary "Stranglers" musicians JJ Burnel and Dave Greenfield on their compound in beautiful and enchanted East-Anglia to create my first full album "MONA MUR". The synth wave songs with Dave Greenfield's signature and unique keyboard arpeggios and Burnel's brutal and elegant bass lines strongly influencing the production sound was released 1988 by RCA and was celebrated by filmmakers Monika Treut and Elfi Mikesch in their movie "Die Jungfrauenmaschine" - which contains a MM live performance of the song "Ritz". The official "Ritz" video was shot by Eduard Oleschak in Vienna on Heldenplatz and Hofburg and in Palais Saurau in the city of Graz, Austria. The album also features a special re-recording of "Surabaya Johnny" using tracks by FM Einheit, Alex Hacke, Nikko Weidemann, Thomas Stern and Siewert Johannsen (the 2nd Mona Mur Band line up) with additional drum tracks by Dave Larcombe ("The Bible").

The 2021 re-reissue is remastered by EN ESCH (KMFDM, Pigface), comes in a new running order with a special version of "Jealous" and a bonus track, "Venus 2020",featured as credits's song of the upcoming Monika Treut movie "Genderation " (2021).
Thank you Dieter Meier !
