THE MONOCHROME SET
with The Love-Birds, Rays, plus DJs Aaron Axelsen (popscene) and Josh Yule (Savoir Faire)
The Monochrome Set formed in 1978, and were heavily influential in the post-punk scene that evolved after the initial scorched earth of punk.The bands early releases were on the legendary Rough Trade Label before signing with Virgin offshoot Din Disc. They also released several albums on the Cherry Red label, making a notable appearance on that labels well known Pillows and Prayers compilation. Though The Monochrome Set split in 1985 the next decade saw several reunions for both live gigs and further studio recordings, their album release count now being well into double figures.After a hiatus of over a decade the band reformed full time in 2010 and have since toured all over the UK, Europe, Japan and the USA, whilst also releasing five new, critically acclaimed, studio albums, the most recent, Maisieworld, on the German Tapete label in February this year.2018 sees the 40th year since the band formed and they will be gigging worldwide to celebrate, featuring original Monochrome Set members Bid (Guitar/Vocals) and Andy Warren (bass) with John Paul Moran (keyboards) and Mike Urban, who was previously in the band in the early 90s, on drums.
