1 - MONOCHROME SET, THE - 1979-1985: THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS! - (L+C) 
TAPETE


6lp's & 6cd's! "I always find it odd that people call us post-punk. I know that punk and New Wave started at the same time because I was there." (Ganesh Seshadri aka Bid, singer, guitarist and main songwriter)Emerging at the end of punk era, The Monochrome Set's estrangement from society came from a more arty angle. This boxset is the full account of their frantically productive early period, the perfect document of an under-appreciated chapter of British pop history.Though widely unknown, they are one of the most influential British bands of the last 40 years, with the early Morrissey and Marr, Blur's Graham Coxon and Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos among their admirers.Though Bid never went to college, The Monochrome Set are often seen as an archetypal art school band. Their name alludes to Yves Klein's monochrome paintings while song titles like "Alphaville" and "Eine Symphonie des Grauens" nodded to Godard and F.W. Murnau.In 1979 they released a string of snappy, now highly collectible singles on Rough Trade, followed by early masterpieces Strange Boutique and Love Zombies.In 1982 they moved to Cherry Red Records with their third LP Eligible Bachelors whose lead single "The Jet Set Junta" was banned for its non-existent connection to the Falklands War.Their major label effort The Lost Weekend (1985) contained their biggest airplay hit "Jacob's Ladder."
