Featuring original 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, 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 band's 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 four new,critically acclaimed, studio albums, the most recent, 'Cosmonaut', on the German 'Tapete' label in September 2016
The Monochrome Set tour dates
A sophisticated and elegant European art-pop outfit. Jessica Griffin's sultry voice and Pete Momtchiloff's sublime guitar have gained their mellow songs plenty of attention. Melancholy charm and wit coupled with a classic guitar pop sound ranging from new folk, tango to garage rock.
