The Monochrome Set: The Lost Weekend

Alex Ogg, Cherry Red, February 2009

THE LOST Weekend was The Monochrome Set's first and only album for Warners subsidiary Blanco y Negro, following their exit from Cherry Red. Yet rather than the promised land, the band's tenure at the label was beset with frustration after frustration. The Lost Year, or perhaps even Annus Miserablis, might have been slightly more apt titles.
