We welcome The Monochrome Set back to Manchester, celebrating 40 years since their creation. They released their latest critically acclaimed album, Maisieworld, in Spring 2018, showing they have no intention of resting on their laurels!
Featuring original 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.
They last played Manchester in 2017, treating us to a cracking set at a packed Gullivers.
It's been a while since Vic has played Leeds, so we are delighted to announce he is coming to Eiger Studios on December 7th.
He returns with the ' Club Left' line up of The Subway Sect featuring one time Bernard Rhodes protege Johnny Britton.
2018 has already been another busy year for Vic. He has released new music of his own as well as fantastic collaborations with Helen McCookerybook and, another favourite of ours, The Nightingales on the single 'Commercial Suicide Man'. Vic continues to play to packed audiences up and down the country and this is a rare opportunity to see this particular line-up.
Vic and the band will be playing a live 6 Music session the night before for Marc Riley; who described him as 'The greatest living Englishman'. High praise indeed.

Saturday 8th December 2018 - We are excited to bring Vic Godard and his band back to Manchester, to play at YES (The Pink Room) for the first time.
The last time Vic was in Manchester he wowed us with a cracking performance at a sold-out Gullivers.
2018 has already been another busy year for Vic. He has released new music of his own as well as fantastic collaborations with Helen McCookerybook and Dandy favourites The Nightingales on the single of the year so far 'Commercial Suicide Man'.
