The Monochrome Set

If they're one of the more neglected acts of the original post-punk generation, it hasn't been for want of trying. The Monochrome Set have reunited a few times since their first official split in 1985, and even found an enthusiastic audience in Japan during the '90s. The band – currently consisting of vocalist Ganesh 'Bid' Seshadri, guitarist Lester Square and bassist Andy Warren, plus Scarlet's Well member Helena Johansson on violin and Steve Brummell on drums – return to Japan following a tour here in April last year, with a new album under their belt, Platinum Coils. The first date of the tour comes with support from retro rockers The Cigavettes and piano-guitar duo Koncos.
