The Monochrome Set, The Green Door Store, Brighton, 11/10/14


Much respected and highly influential, post-punk/indie band, The Monochrome Set, celebrating their 36th year together, make a welcome return to Brighton following their previous, sell out, gigs.
The Monochrome Set, originally formed in 1978, are notable for their witty lyrics, the laconic delivery of lead singer Bid, and the idiosyncratically retrogressive playing style of lead guitarist Lester Square.
Lost in the mists of musical history, the Monochrome Set appeared in the hazy period just after punk and were around for a good two decades, releasing clever albums full of hook-crammed melodies and coloured with a dark sense of humour. Bid’s arch vocals gave the band a wonderful camp quality, and it was probably his lyrical smarts that alerted a young Morrissey to their presence; they were one of his favourite groups before he formed The Smiths.
Other fans include Franz Ferdinand, Norman Cook, Johnny Marr, Iggy Pop and Graham Coxon. The Monochrome Set regrouped in 2010 and have since played many shows in the UK ,USA, Europe and Japan. They have released two new albums in the last couple of years, 'Platinum Coils' and 'Super Plastic City' and are currently recording another for release early next year.
