(Monochrome Set - another in a long line of unpredictable bands, for which we are forever grateful)
1979. The wave of Post-punk/pre-New Wave bands were starting to make their presences known over here in the States - eroding what was a pretty stodgy business during the mid-1970's. One of those bands were The Monochrome Set. Probably less commercially known than XTC, but no less interesting. They've enjoyed a pretty lengthy career, going from 1978 to 1985 and then picking up in 1990 to 1998. There was a one-off gig last year. So whether or not they will surface and regroup in the future is anyone's guess.
But for now - here's their second single "Eine Symphonie des Grauens".
