Synopsis

Product Description
The Monochrome Set defined themselves in the late ' '70s and '80s as England s wittiest troubadours, avoiding the sombre overtones of post-punk by penning songs that had a clean '60s pop sensibility, allied to vocalist and guitarist Bid s sandpaper-dry reflections on life and love. This CD documents the band s time at Blanco y Negro Records, the mini-major set up by Mike Alway (Cherry Red) and Geoff Travis (Rough Trade). All tracks have been digitally remastered from the original audio sources. Five bonus tracks are included, including additional mixes of the two singles housed on the album, Jacob s Ladder , the band s nearly hit , and Wallflower . Also includes selection of colour photography from the period.
 

CD Reviews

Masterpiece By Criminally Underated Geniuses!
ThrEaD NUGENT | Newport Beach, CA United States | 04/10/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've been waitng for 20 years for this to come out on cd...Lost Weekend is The Monochrome Set's most polished and commercial LP. Arguably their best. Slick production, great songs, not a bad one one here....Thank god they included the incredible 'Andiamo' instrumental and the other B-sides as bonus tracks....This is an LP that every Monochrome Set fan (as well as every Smiths fan) should own. Recommended beyond belief!!!!"
