Welcome to the fascinating and magical world of musician, lyricist and writer Munly J. Munly 32nd
Originating from local DIY punk roots, Munly J. Munly 32nd has become an influential and visually striking fixture in the Denver arts community for over 30 years. As lead songwriter & vocalist of Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, DBUK and Munly & the Lupercalians, the lyricist and writer has been prolifically creating and performing locally and worldwide, generating a cult following and reputation.
Within all of Munly’s current work & projects, he unites hundreds of fully developed characters in the constantly morphing world of Lupercalia. His various work sonically & visually explores an apocalyptic land burned down to the ground. This new music project Munly & the Lupercalians uniquely utilizes the sounds of acoustic guitar to create a spectrum of doom while simultaneously enlightening a path of fascination into the magic territories of Lupercalia. As accompanying musicians, Munly utilizes actual characters of Lupercalia as his band.

This record is release number one of three that will form a triptych of tales about his created world of Lupercalia on SCACUNINCORPORATED record label. After this Munly & the Lupercalians album (#1), the additional releases will be performed by his other projects – Slim Cessna’s Auto Club (#2) and DBUK (#3). Each album spins the tales and stories of various characters within Munly J Munly 32nd˚’s fictional world of the ’Kinnery of Lupercalia’
While discussing his early career, Munly J Munly 32nd˚explains: “I love A. A. Milne, but I have found that is not my voice. What faltering voice I have found is drawn towards unsavory situations, malevolent characters, uncompromising settings.” – while also creating similar eclectic lyrical characters to Milne, Munly’s creativity does differentiate his process.
“I normally write in the first person,” explains Munly, “but this does not mean I am the first person. I do love a few of my characters, however, I would not tolerate the majority of these abhorrences if they were real. And that is the crux. Many of these beings are not fiction in this world, for a portion of the human race they have been a dominating presence.”
