Sisters Of Mercy founder returns with glam album


 

Gary Marx was the co-founder of The Sisters Of Mercy and part of that iconic early era when the band created a much-loved template that has become influential. He may have been off the scene for a couple of decades, but he has returned with a lovingly crafted homage to the glam rock he grew up with in the pre-punk era.

Wrecking Ball Sounds is delighted to announce they will be releasing Green Ginger Jive, the latest album by Sisters of Mercy guitarist and co-founder Gary Marx, his first commercially available new material in over 15 years.

For this latest opus Marx slams the Batmobile into reverse and hurtles back to a time before The Sisters and Leeds ’79, before Punk.

‘This is the sequinned prequel to the story I’ve been asked to tell a thousand times.’

A Glam Jamboree is perhaps the best way to describe the album.

Green Ginger Jive is one long love letter to my youth growing up in Hull and East Yorkshire. It’s me dressing up and playing at being Mick Ronson. It’s the most fun I’ve ever had making a record, and I think it shows.’

The songs are all Marx originals, but he’s wearing his influences with pride. If you ever raced home to see Suzi Quatro on Top Of The Pops, or wrote Slade on your knuckles step right up.

He dragged a bunch of friends (including Wayne Hussey, Miles Hunt, and John Robb, among others), kicking and screaming to help out. ‘The first time I’ve recorded anything with Wayne since First And Last And Always.’

The songs leap out, one after another, hook-laden and instantly memorable.

‘I wanted to do something joyful, that wasn’t afraid of being silly…I wanted to be fourteen again – fifty years after the event, but who’s counting !?’

Green Ginger Jive will be available as a 12-song vinyl LP with a limited edition 7” single free with the first 250 copies. It will also be available as an extended CD with bonus tracks.
