The Monochrome Set
Maisieworld

London’s Monochrome Set were post-punk before the genre was even defined, falling into stylistic territory somewhere between Magazine, Orange Juice and Blue Orchids. Their influence was evident in the more arch corners of Britpop...view item »

The Monochrome Set
Cosmonaut

Trace back from The Last Shadow Puppets, Franz Ferdinand et al any you’ll find The Monochrome Set. They originally formed in 1978, as part of the first wave of post-punk, and give most contemporaries a run for their money. Grand and smokey dive bar music, that would fit soundtracking a com...view item »

The Monochrome Set
White Noise: Early Recordings

I feel like I should've known more about these guys.. I mean from the moment you stick on this seven track slab of early recordings (dating from the mid-late 1970s) it's completely apparent that they've played a really important part in indie rock history, even if they don't seem to have quite had their due for it. I guess their low-key proto-Ne...view item »

M80 Concert

Well now you can find out with this marvellous historical document. Its raw as anything with funny little songs that are one part Noel Coward and one part Orange Juice. Oh where did they arrive at such a sound? Wh...view item »

The Monochrome Set
Super Plastic City

The Monochrome Set were ace. Arch, clever early 80’s pop that was an influence on the nascent Morrissey as well as a whole host of wordy, literate indie bands that followed in their wake. I’m not 100% sure I should extend that into the present tense following a cursory listen to this vinyl edition of t...view item »

The Monochrome Set
Love Zombies

The Monochrome Set are emerging as the forgotten heroes of the post-punk early eighties. This extremely quirky British band had an abundance of talent that others could only dream of. Yet the band was usually met with disdain or derision from fans and critics alike in the 1980's. Thirty years later and the significance of the band is finally rec...view item »
