Sister Vanilla's Little Pop Rock is a Reid family reunion, with William and Jim providing guitars and production along with the occasional lead and backing vocals, and sister Linda (who sang Moe Tucker on the last Jesus and Mary Chain record to date, Munki) on lead vocals. It's a Jesus and Mary Chain reunion too because long-time JAMC member Ben Lurie is on board as well. Unsurprisingly, Little Pop Rock sounds a whole lot like a Jesus and Mary Chain record.
It seems strange that a pair of grown men should be hiding behind their sister, but that's what Jim and William Reid do on Little Pop Rock. In all but name it's the closest thing to a new Jesus & Mary Chain album in a decade. However, their infamously scuzzy sound is now fronted by little sister Linda, who added vocals on the Mary Chain's last album, Munki.
