The Monochrome Set
Little Noises 1990-1995

The Monochrome Set have always been prolific - spewing out albums at a rate of knots that put other bands to shame. They are best known for their early '80s records but after a split in 1986 the band reformed in 1990 and released five new albums over the next five years. This lesser known era of the band is perfectly captured on this 5CD set which presents each album plus a grab bag of bonus tracks.

The Monochrome Set
Fabula Mendax

Riding in on the first wave of post-punk (apologies for the inappropriate surfing analogy), The Monochrome Set got the ears and tongues of Edwyn Collins and Morrissey (back when people still respected him) wagging. The band have also been an influence on Graham Coxon, Divine Comedy and Franz Ferdinand. Their latest album Fabula Mendex, is based on the scribblings of Armande de Pange who was a pal of Joan Of Arc. History and indie pop all at once.

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 and, arguably, the Dunedin Sound groups. Their fifth album since their reunion a decade ago retains all their breezy and spiky melodicism.

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 coming of age indie flick.

The Monochrome Set
Volume, Contrast, Brilliance... Vol.2

The Monochrome Set are a lesser-known troupe of indie / post-punkers, although their influence was later visible in bands like Franz Ferdinand and The Divine Comedy. Volume, Contrast, Brilliance… Vol. 2 compiles a bundle of demos (home and studio) that span their 1978-1991 existence. On Tapete, with some informative liner notes.

The Monochrome Set
Spaces Everywhere

Back in their third incarnation, The Monochrome Set are releasing twelfth album. The band hasn't left behind their old sounds and tendencies, and in ways Spaces Everywhere has audible roots in the eighties. However, the old-school blues and new wave are combined with a fresh sounds that make this album appealing to both the fans and those unfamiliar with The Monochrome Set.

The Monochrome Set
Strange Boutique

The 1980-released 'Strange Boutique' is the debut studio album by Camden post-punks The Monochrome Set. It's almost impossible to pigeonhole. Contrary guitar riffs and madcap drums swirl across the record unexpectedly aside Bid's (lead) crooning vocals. Their legacy as cult classics is still firmly intact, in this statement debut you'll see why.

The Monochrome Set
Love Zombies

The Monochrome Set were an arty post-punk band with eyebrows permanently arched as they brought a bit of sophistication and poetry into the racket of the day. They were highly influential and you can hear their sound in the likes of the Smiths and Franz Ferdinand. Love Zombies was their second album from 1982 and here gets a limited re-issue on Tapete.
