Heavy Pop presents The Monochrome Set

"The Monochrome Set, arguably the first truly postmodern pop band." - The Guardian
"Clever, beautiful, quirky... they are fast becoming the most consistently brilliant band from the late seventies" - Louder Than War

The Monochrome Set are a British post-punk/new wave band originally formed in London in 1978 and FINALLY make their Reading debut. Featuring original members Bid (Guitar/Vocals) and Andy Warren (bass) with John Paul Moran (keyboards) and Mike Urban, who was previously in the band in the early 90s, on drums, They were heavily influential in the ‘post-punk’ scene that evolved after he initial scorched earth of punk.

The band’s early releases were on the legendary Rough Trade Label before signing with Virgin offshoot Din Disc. They also released several albums on the Cherry Red label, making a notable appearance on that labels’ well known ‘Pillows and Prayers’ compilation.

Though The Monochrome Set split in 1985 the next decade saw several reunions for both live gigs and further studio recordings, their album release count now being well into double figures.

After a hiatus of over a decade the band reformed full time in 2010 and have since toured all over the UK, Europe, Japan and the USA, whilst also releasing six new, critically acclaimed, studio albums. Now in their 42nd year, they are beginning a new series of gigs promoting their latest album, 'Fabula Mendax', and playing songs old and new.

Support on the night from Special Guests (TBA).
