MUNCH. The band, not the artist...

Norwegian cult band MUNCH was formed in Kristiansand in late 1986 by Ivar Mykland, Rich Nordskog, Alf Solbakken and Lars Årdal, with Rune Bergstø joining a few months later. They released the albums Munch (1987, remix 1988), Excessive Mobility (1990) and Tree (1991) plus some obscure tapes while active. Their final show in Oslo in 1991 was released as Live the year after, followed by the double cassette compilation Moments Of Movement.

MUNCH's magnum opus, TREE, originally available on CD only, is finally reissued as a double LP, with newly remastered sound pressed on blue and red 180 gram vinyl. Comes in gatefold sleeve with updated artwork and full credits. Co-released by T23, Etch Wear and Hærverk Industrier in a limited edition of 300 copies.
