The Monochrome Set + The Hepburns
THE MONOCHROME SET + THE HEPBURNS The Monochrome Set feature original members Bid (Guitar/Vocals) and Andy Warren (bass) with John Paul Moran (keyboards) and Mike Urban (aka Slocombe) 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. The band\'s early releases were on the legendary Rough Trade Label before signing with Virgin offshoot Din Disc. They also released several albums on the Cherry Red label, making a notable appearance on that labels\' well known \'Pillows and Prayers\' compilation. Though The Monochrome Setsplit in 1985 the next decade saw several reunions for both live gigs and further studio recordings, their album release count now being well into double figures.After a hiatus of over a decade the band reformed full time in 2010 and have since toured all over the UK, Europe, Japan and the USA, whilst also releasing four new, critically acclaimed, studio albums, the most recent, \'Cosmonaut\', on the German \'Tapete\' label in September 2016 The Hepburns . A capricious guitar pop act from Wales that appeared briefly with Cherry Red at the tail end of the 80s to the bafflement of the UK press of the day (who weren\'t ready for a band that claimed Bacharach, Barry and Morricone as influences). The Magic of the Hepburns was not lost overseas, however, where the band left a lasting impression on younger fans from Grimsby Fishmarket in Sweden to the Siesta crew in Spain, as well as on the future boss of Radio Khartoum. But there was a hitch (not to mention a lost album), and no oneincluding John Peel (who reportedly wondered aloud on air)knew what had become of the band in the decade that followed. By some miracle, a neighbor of band leader Matt Jones was referred to Radio Khartoum in 1999 and a pact was quickly struck. Jones and co. quickly found their stride, producing a series of albums each better than the last, and much faster than the slow RK machinery can release them.

Josefin Hrn + The Liberation - The Louisiana - 03.03.17
JOSEFIN HRN + THE LIBERATION www.josefinohrn.com In an era in which psychedelia can often mean merely a grab-bag of influences from which wah-wah pedals and two-note riffs are dispensed as signifiers and signposts into a realm of easy accessibility as opposed to gateways to another dimension, it can be a rarity to come across a band who are genuinely fixated on creating alternate realities for the listener. Yet this is exactly how Stockholms Josen hrn + The Liberation view their incandescent art, and its this sensibility thats led to the kaleidoscopic splendour of their two albums for Rocket Recordings, Horse Dance (2015) and Mirage (2016). The band has seen a dramatic rise to prominence since the release of their debut EP Diamond Waves in 2014 leading to shows in their homeland with Goat and Les Big Byrd, a nomination for a Swedish Grammy as best newcomer, and rapturously received appearances at festivals like Roskilde. These adventures set the stage for a spectacular movement into the unknown from their earlier work once signing to Rocket Recordings. Their two LPs razorsharp collection of songs that marry dreamlike radiance with hypnotic rhythmic drive, set alight by a prismatic experimental glow. It inhabits a realm in which a propulsive 60s-tinged pop song can be elevated skyward with krautrock-tinged repetition, dub echo and analogue curlicues alike, and one in which a Broadcast-style mantra can tap into a psychic lineage that stretches all the way from The United States Of America and Serge Gainsbourg to Portisheads Third. Yet whilst ghosts of the like of Laika, Velvet Underground and The Creatures may lurk in the darker recesses of their songs, this is a band paying no homage to bygone glories. The Liberation cite a myriad influences in both their philosophical stance and their aesthetic, from 12th century iconoclasts like Milarepa to 20th century sonic voyagers like Catherine Ribeiro, and from Kandinskys abstract expressions of synaesthesia to the avant-jazz of Moondog. Yet at all times their transcendental extrapolations are married to icy and enticing melodic flourishes, making for a revitalising clash between the chic and the transcendental, and a sound as biting as it is beatific. The release of their 2nd album Mirage was jubilantly received across UK Radios BBC6 Music, climaxing in a Lauren Laverne BBC6 Live session and a full European tour with fellow Swedes Goat The band will be hitting more European stages for a headline tour in March 2017.
