The Monochrome Set- Early Recordings: 1975-1977 "White Noise" (Capitured Tracks 73)


"THE MONOCHROME SET have a huge legacy in post-punk and indie rock history. White Noise represents the period before their first LP or 7-inch, before punk really took hold in the UK, in fact. These seven songs from '75-'77 have never appeared on vinyl before this release, and we're thrilled to get it out there. Monochrome Set have recently reformed for a European tour." (Midhaven)

Sardonic, low-key rock with a crystal clear Velvets influence. Hints of Devo-esque New Wave in tracks like "We Are Zarbie" & "Flesh.Trash.Heat". A tasty serving of '70s pre-punk from this largely underrated group. 320 Vinyl Rip by yours truly.
