A teaser from MXMJoY's first digital release - release date - 30.11.18 - stay tuned, more announcements then!

“Like many of their early ’80s UK peers, Maximum Joy mixed punk, funk, disco, and reggae. This new set captures a band carving its own place with two of music’s most powerful tools: muscle and joy…At the nexus of a bunch of different styles, in the shadow of their peers, they struck a spark that still glows.” Pitchfork

Birthed from the seminal 1980s post-punk band Maximum Joy, MXMJoY is the dramatic reimagining by founding members Janine Rainforth and Charlie Llewellin.
The reformation was spearheaded by Rainforth with a show at Simple Things in 2015.
Returning with a new line-up MXMJoY played 2 key gigs in the summer – Dimensions Festival and a London date put together by Lexus Blondin/ Total Refreshment Centre. There are announcements coming soon for more music and events.

"Elsewhere, Bristol band MXMJOY play to a ..loyal crowd. Seminal to the funk-punk movement in the early 80s, with tracks like Stretch proving anthems of the New York underground, the group have been quiet for the most part, but their set packs a punch. Smooth basslines fall into dub delays and parping horn parts – all providing a strong soundtrack to a sea of skanking revellers.. "Crack Magazine, Dimensions Sept 2018


released November 30, 2018
This is a London Field Recordings release.
