Although the name may suggest otherwise, Monnone Alone are a bona fide pop group based around the songwriting of Mark Monnone (ex-Lucksmiths) and featuring members of A-grade pop tinkerers Architecture in Helsinki, Mid-State Orange and Aleks & the Ramps. That’s almost as bona fide as it gets. Monnone Alone will be playing selections from their third album Stay Foggy along with other hits and near-misses from their jangly and fuzzed-out back catalogue.
Excellent supports will be Kilroy whose post-punk guitars, driving rhythms and dry lyricism can be heard on latest single ‘Talk and Churn’, plus Lily Morris with her misty morning melancholia and tales of life between Canberra and her hometown of Braidwood.
“Stay Foggy thrives on the juxtaposition of all manner of Indie Australiana and the best of the mid-90s Lemonheads / Evan Dando-style slacker pop.” – JanglePopHub
“This is where power-pop is meant to hang out, bursting with melody and lightly jangling guitar chords.” – Austin Town Hall
