The Mono LPs

One of Ralph's; and of course Liverpool's, favourite bands is The Mono LPs so it was with no little joy to see that they'd released L.O.V.E & H.A.T.E. from their State Of Decay (3rd November launch gig in the Buyers Club) album. 

It's a gorgeously riff-laden rock track overlaid with orchestral cello and a raunchy vocal. Scissor Sisters meets ELO is as close as I can come by way of comparison, although to be fair The Mono LPs are most definitely one of a kind.

We'll be playing the single on this Sunday's Radio KC Indie Show so be sure to tune in from 5-7pm.




It's a punchy song making a poignant statement about how love and hate can be as small as two people in a relationship or as big as two countries at war. 

It's guaranteed to be a fans favourite and garner radio play both locally and further afield. 

More especially as fans of The Mono LPs include Elvis Costello, The View and Blood Red Shoes.




With a multifarious catalogue of gigs, including supports with The Maccabees and British Sea Power helping to showcase their unique sound The Mono LPs are getting further away from comparisons to the likes of The Arctic Monkeys and The Black Keys.

They're comprised of Ste Reid on Vocal, Songwriting & Guitar, Vicky Mutch on Cello & Backing Vocal, Chris Barlow on Bass and Daniel Beech on Drums.
