The Monochrome Set are the latest addition to this years run of shows. The band make a return visit to The Georgian Theatre on Saturday 11th July to promote their new album “Spaces Everywhere”
The band feature original members Bid (Vocals), Andy Warren (Bass) and Lester Square (Guitar) with Steve Brummell pounding the drums. Formed in 1976 as The B-Sides with Adam Ant as an original member.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.
The band’s early releases were on the legendary Rough trade label before signing with Virgin off shoot Din Disc 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 although any momentum was soon halted when Bid suffered a SAH (a form of a Stroke). Thankfully he recovered and a new album was released in 2012 entitled Platinum Coils. The band have continued to tour & record and released the follow up Super Plastic City in 2013. They are now touring to promote this years new album Spaces Everywhere on the Tapete record label.
