FORMICA BLUES

1LP
IN

Mono was an English trip hop duo that scored a hit in 1996 with their first single “Life In Mono”. Three singles followed before releasing their debut album Formica Blues. The sound of the album is described as to wallow in the sound of television and film theme tunes of the Sixties and Seventies, but both to embellish and underpin it with jazzy breakbeats and Massive Attack synthy atmospheres.

Mono was an English trip hop duo that scored a hit in 1996 with their first single “Life In Mono”. Three singles followed before releasing their debut album Formica Blues. The album reached #71 in the UK album charts and reached #137 on the Billboard 200 in the US. The sound of the album is described as to wallow in the sound of television and film theme tunes of the Sixties and Seventies, but both to embellish and underpin it with jazzy breakbeats and Massive Attack synthy atmospheres. A logical reference since the album was produced by Mark Virgo, who collaborated with furthermore Massive Attack and Björk.

Mono´s career was brief but powerful with Formica Blues as their only full-length release. This classic trip hop album is available on black vinyl.
