40 YEARS AGO: The Monochrome Set – “Ten Don’ts For Honeymooners”
“July 11, 1981
THE MONOCHROME SET have landed another record deal since they were dropped by Dindisc late last year. The new label is Pre Records (home of The Scars) and their first outting on Pre is “Ten Don’ts For Honeymooners”.
The NME calls it, “… thoroughly English, potentially funny, unbearably twee, pointlessly eccentric, admirable cheek, suspicious desires, surrogate madness, bits of Cale and Barret, Stanshall’s Bonzos without the booze or nostril hair, too cute to talk about.” It’s flipped with “Straits of Malacca.”
