1 - MONOCHROME SET, THE - COSMONAUT - (CD) 
TAPETE


At the end of the 70s, The Monochrome Set were part of the first wave of post punk bands. Right from the beginning, the band earned a solid reputation as purveyors of fine pop, gaining praise from 80s contemporaries such as Morrissey and Edwyn Collins. Importantly, in later years this praise has continued with artists such as Franz Ferdinand, The Divine Comedy and Graham Coxon, all citing the band as a key influence on their own work. The Monochrome Set sound has often been described as timeless, and that alone explains why, over the years, the band has continued gaining admirers. "Cosmonaut", the band's 13th album, is a perfect example of this exhilarating mix. The title track opens with a Theremin cyber fly buzzing towards your skull before the song hits, launching you into a mirror dimension that is both familiar and alien. The whole album is a trip that starts with a hallucinating cash-till lady, then travels through dream-sets involving cannibalism, disaffected squirrels, strange gods, dying sweethearts, sexual depravity, Alzheimer's, backward evolution, and ends in an operating theatre, amid a sea of medical tentacles.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Cosmonaut 02. Suddenly, Last Autumn 03. Squirrel In A Hat 04. Put It On The Altar 05. Tigress 06. Stick Your Hand Up If Youre Louche 07. Fele 08. Kingfisher Blue 09. Monkey Suitcase 10. Lost In My Own Room, Dreaming

6 - MONOCHROME SET, THE - SPACES EVERYWHERE - (CD) 
TAPETE


"On one hand, the music is very melodic and cheerful. The lyrics, however, deal with death, decay, change ... no wonder we are rather popular with the undead," says singer, guitarist and songwriter Bid of the new THE MONOCHROME SET album "Spaces Everywhere". A very particular humor. And a very unique sound: Although this time banjos, Hammond organ, female backing vocals and even flutes can be heard on the new album, experts and laymen alike will recognize: This is THE MONOCHROME SET. Undistorted, nervous guitars, like the soundtrack to a Nouvelle Vague film ... but one featuring Michael Caine, Louis de Funes and Belmondo (directed by Andy Warhol). Peculiarly timeless, it is a sound that can not be categorized. Although rooted in the 1950s and 60s (the guitar sound, for example, is a hybrid of Duane Eddy and Sterling Morrison), it still feels oddly modern. Then there is Bid's voice, which this time is more reminiscent of the great American crooners than of Lou Reed. Bid wrote most of the songs in May and June of 2014. Perhaps the band's popularity among the undead will diminish upon hearing the springtime air that can thus be detected in this music?

TRACKLISTING: 01. Iceman 02. Fantasy Creatures 03. Avenue 04. Oh, You're Such A Star 05. Rain Check 06. When I Get To Hollywood 07. The Z Train 08. The Scream 09. In A Little Village 10. Spaces Everywhere

10 - MONOCHROME SET, THE - VOLUME, CONTRAST, BRILLIANCE.. VOL. 2 - (CD)

Right from the beginning, the band earned a solid reputation as purveyors of fine pop, gaining praise from 80s contemporaries such as Morrissey and Edwyn Collins.

The Monochrome Set sound has often been described as timeless, and that alone explains why, over the years, the band has continued gaining admirers. 33 years after the release of the classic "Volume, Contrast, Brilliance. Vol.1" comes this wonderful collection of unreleased and rare demos. Spanning 1978 to 1991, these range from DIY to high quality studio recordings - many are real gems, but some also failed to be released or properly recorded for a variety of reasons (which are explained in the liner notes) - bad timing, odd decisions, even forgetfulness! The range of styles displayed are typical of this iconic and highly influential band - slices of their sound can be heard throughout the indie and mainstream genres of many countries.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Something About You (1985) 02. I Wanna Be Your Man (1978) 03. Cilla Black (1983)? 04. The Greatest Performance Artist In The World (1983) 05. Reach For Your Gun (1985) 06. Fly Me To The Moon (1978) 07. Love (1985) 08. Whoops! What A Palaver (1985) 09. I Want Your Skin (1989)? 10. Stories From The Book Of Love (1986) 11. White Lightning (1987)? 12. Wisteria (1987)? 13. Bella Morte (1989)? 14. Swing (1986)? 15. Black Are The Flowers (1991)? 16. Jack (1991)
