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."

3 - 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 - MAISIEWORLD - (CD) 
TAPETE


Welcome to Maisieworld!Your host, Maisie, will guide you through a succession of songs that highlight the volatile, capricious and ultimately unstable nature of The Monochrome Set. New doors lead into hitherto unexplored corridors, where saxophones, trombones, and trumpets claw at you from the Harlem-brownstone walls which pulsate with the ceaseless beating of animal skins.Echos from a bygone era of expertise race around you as you careen down these sewers of sound, lead guitar solos leap with rusty scimitars, strange organs slither over you on the damp roof, a growling bass snaps at your ankles, a misshapen banjo scuttles across your path, and, all the while, barbarians shake the seed-filled skulls of the dead.Playful vocals sing of your frail organic nature, the sad dreams and hopes that you entertain, and the dismal decisions you make. Scenes of a different imagination tear you like brittle canvas and rearrange your portrait into another's fantasy.Upon your exit from Maisieworld, you will be pleasantly surprised to find that your vessel is now filled with abnormal thoughts.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Give Me Your Youth 02. Stage Fright 03. I Feel Fine (really) 04. Cyber Son 05. Dont Wear That Look 06. Mrs Robot 07. Oh Yes, Im Going To Be In Your Dreams Tonight 08. Shallow 09. Silence Is Rusty 10. Maisieworld

8 - 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

12 - MONOCHROME SET, THE - VOLUME, CONTRAST, BRILLIANCE.. VOL. 2 - (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. 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!
