Colle de mon age.
It seems all I'm posting these days are Youtube videos. That's because I don't leave the house and have nothing to take pictures of, but myself, which I don't see a reason for. But I have been researching The Monochrome Set, so here's the cream of what can be found on youtube for you:
Jet Set Junta
(I wanna be the tamburine woman on the right!)
This is from their 1985 album. It's stylistically so very different from the early stuff I knew previously, that I first doubted that it was the same band. Maybe this was their mid-decade sell-out album ... the Monochrome Set Parklife.
It's still good, despite the Gospel backing vocals. It's also a pretty spectacular video if you ask me.
Eine Symphonie des Grauens
Early! Gloomy! Mumbled incomprehensible lyrics!
There are some parallels to Franz Ferdinand, I suppose. And his way of gazing into space/at the audience sort of resembles that of Alex Kapranos.
Argh, it makes me uneasy to try and write about music, and pretend I know something more about it than that I like it or don't like it. I don't! I am simply NOT an authority in this field. :(
