SONG OF THE DAY The Monochrome Set – He’s Frank

When British college punk band the B-Sides changed their name and direction to become Adam & the Ants, guitarist/vocalist Bid and guitarist Lester Square decided to go their own way and started the Monochrome Set.

Originating in London in 1978, the band  (also comprising ex-Gloria Mundi and Mean Street bassist Jeremy Harrington and former Art Attacks drummer J.D. Crowe) were promptly snatched up by Rough Trade and less than a year later had already released three singles: He’s Frank, Eine Symphonie des Grauens and Monochrome Set.

He’s Frank was released in 1979 and, with its stomping bass line and fast-paced post-punk melody, always makes me want to go get out my bass and learn the hell out of this!!..Check it out above.
