North London circa 1976, a young band of school chums, namely; Adam Ant, Lester Square, Andy Warren & Bid write and perform music together under the inauspicious name, The B-Sides.
Soon after, Adam Ant departs to embark upon his hugely successful pursuit of Chart-Topping A-Side singles. Meanwhile, the remaining trio carry on undeterred – albeit with a new moniker and new members – as The Monochrome Set.
Henceforth, this unashamedly fey, art-punk combo set forth on their seemingly hell-bent mission to studiously eschew de rigueur of fame and fortune afforded by their former band mate and in doing so unwittingly draw up an aesthetic blueprint that is later traced out by a select band of British musicians including, The Smiths, Blur & Franz Ferdinand (to name but a few!)

Set your dial to 104.4 FM in order to witness this ‘rare as hens teeth‘ live performance from the now newly reformed Monochrome Set, hear them fine tune their collective antenna prior to setting off on a series of sold-out shows from the UK to Japan and beyond!

Also, enjoy the final episode of Duncan McAfee’s 5 part, sound art mini-series “Your Voice Travels”, in which he explores the personal relationship with the human voice through a series of semi-autobiographical poetic vignettes combined with original music and audio artworks.
