The Monochrome Set
"THE MONOCHROME SET consist of, original Monochrome Set members, Bid (Guitar/Vocals) and Andy Warren (bass) with John Paul Moran (keyboards) and 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 label's 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 five new, critically acclaimed, studio albums, the most recent, ‘Maisieworld’, on the German ‘Tapete’ label in February this year. 2018 sees the 40th year since the band formed and they will be gigging worldwide to celebrate this."

The Milling Gowns
"The Milling Gowns are Boston's premier gloom pop band, conjuring up the mood and rhythm section power of Joy Division, with the vocal & lyrical strength of Magnetic Fields and evocative guitar work of the Cure, with a dream-pop/shoegaze icing that makes their sound truly unique. You can listen to and download The Milling Gowns' most recent recordings at at https://themillinggowns.bandcamp.com, with earlier work from their catalogue available on Spotify and iTunes."
