The Monochrome Set entertain London Dingwalls, April 2012

In what’s rapidly turning into an annual event, long-serving indie popsters The Monochrome Set played a superb set to a packed house at London’s Dingwalls last night.

Here’s some photos from the show.

The support act was interesting enough but made the fatal error of playing too ruddy long.

There’s a fantastic PA at Dingwalls – really top notch –  although its layout means that you get a great sound in the  middle, but less so on the edges and the back.

Although usually the cue for a swift return to the bar, the Monochrome Set introduced a suite of new songs from their upcoming album, which actually proved to be very, very good indeed.

We had the privilege of DJing the show and had a heap of fun, although I’m still a tad miffed at the undue haste in which the management declared the venue closed after the band had finished.

They had the audacity – audacity, I tell ye – to cut off Liberace’s spine-tingling, ivory-rattling rendition of ‘Roll Out The Barrel’  mid-song. Unforgivable. The Heathens.
