The Mono LPs
Championed by BBC Introducing's Dave Monks, having recorded a sell-out live gig at the Cavern Club for the BBC's Live Lounge sessions, The Mono LPs are considered one of Liverpool's bright young prospects.
The Mono LPs have headlined shows for Alan McGee (Oasis, Creation Records), performed at the legendary Notting Hill Arts Club, The Orange Unlit Tour and a wealth of festivals including Kendal Calling, Liverpool Music Week and Sound City.
They’ve supported the likes of Space (Female of the Species), Toploader (Dancing In The Moonlight), Sandi Thom (I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker) have busked with The View and even had punk legend, Mick Jones (The Clash), support them at one of their London shows!
An eclectic mix, we’re sure you’ll agree, but then we’re talking about a very special band. Offering a distinctive baroque-fuelled, bluesy rock ‘n’ roll sound in the midst of an increasingly saturated and overly populated indie rock backdrop, the quartet are selling out venues across the UK.
Amongst the group of highly talented, stunningly unique musicians is cellist, Vicky, who has performed with both The View and Blood Red Shoes on their last albums. You’ll feel the cello riffing its way through a barrage of sound. This is a rock 'n' roll band at full pelt.
The Mono LPs showcase juicy guitar riffs, intricate T-Rex like swooping strings, sexually charged lyrics and an uncompromising energy. The offbeat five-piece have established themselves as a group of major significance on the scene through their impressive work ethic and a dedication to an ever-expanding fan base of ‘Monettes’.
The band go from strength to strength having released their first single ‘Die A Little Death’ on Cavern Records in October 2012 which was recorded at the Grammy award-winning Parr Street Recording Studios, (frequented the likes of Coldplay, Pulp and Black Sabbath). They’ve worked with influential producers Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys) and Jon Withnall (Coldplay).
Grounded in making music they love and loving the music they make, ‘The Mono LPs’ are riding high and showing no signs of letting up!
“Fantastic band. They just keep getting better and better!”
“A special Liverpool indie band...reel off a slew of songs which are bona fide hits waiting to happen.”
“Best band of the festival, by far, were The Mono LPs”
