The Monochrome Set + Davey Woodward & The Winter Orphans + The Twelve Hour Foundation, Bristol The Monochrome Set return to The Thunderbolt for the seventh time.
Featuring original Monochrome Set members Bid (Guitar/Vocals) and Andy Warren (bass) with Mike Urban, who was previously in the band in the early 90s, on drums, The Monochrome Set formed in 1978, and were heavily influential in the ‘post-punk’ scene that evolved after the 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 43rd year, they are beginning a new series of gigs promoting their latest album and playing songs old and new.
Support - Davey Woodward & The Winter Orphans
Davey Woodward fronted indie bands The Brilliant Corners and The Experimental Pop Band. He has also played in alt rock trio Karen. The Winter Orphans are a group of friends realising the potential of his solo songs.
In the last two decades he has mainly been writing acoustic solo Intimate folk punctuated by ‘new wave’.
and
The Twelve Hour Foundation
Described as "...an effervescently melting pot of rubbery juddering minimalism ... low-slung motorik propulsion ... arcadian wistfulness ...Wendy Carlos classicism ... and a raft of reliably squiggly Look Around You-meets-Tomorrow’s World soundtrack miniatures.
Adrian (Concrete Islands)
"...a sparklingly produced, fresh distillation of the spirit and bright breezy feel of classic British library electronics and BBC recordings.
Jim Jupp (Ghost Box Records / Belbury Poly)
