A very special concert from one of the most important and influential bands to emerge from the post punk scene in the late 70s.

The Monochrome Set was formed in 1978 by vocalist Ganesh ‘Bid’ Seshadri and guitarist Lester Square when art rock band The B-Sides split ( whose name-changing bassist Stuart Goddard formed Adam & The Ants). With a whimsical pop sensibility, clever lyrics and an idiosyncratic, retrogressive guitar-led sound, they bridged the gap between freak beat and post punk and effectively paved the way for groups such as The Smiths. Influencing a whole family tree of bands from Orange Juice and Fire Engines to The Divine Comedy, Graham Coxon and Franz Ferdinand, The Monochrome Set are back, with original members Bid and Lester Square sounding as fresh and exciting as ever. 

This concert will begin at 8pm but our Picturehouse Cafe Bar will be open from 5.30pm for delicious food and drinks.
