The band feature original members Bid (Vocals) and Andy Warren (Bass) with Steve Brummell pounding the drums and the return of John Paul Moran on keyboards. Formed in 1976, as The B-Sides, the band soon became The Monochrome Set and were heavily influential in the “post punk” scene that evolved after the initial scorched earth of punk. Fans include Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Franz Ferdinand, Graham Coxon and Norman Cook, amongst many others.
The band’s early releases were on the legendary Rough Trade label before signing with Virgin off shoot Dindisc and have since had a long association with Cherry Red Records. They have been prolific in their recorded output over the years with an album count now into double figures.
The band split in 1985 although they recorded and played live sporadically over the years before reforming as a going concern in 2010. A new album was released in 2012, entitled "Platinum Coils". Since then the band have toured all over Europe, the USA and Japan and released the follow up album, "Super Plastic City", in 2013. They are now touring to promote new material.
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.
