Biography

Mono Stereo hail from Malmö in Sweden and are one of those rare bands who manage to reach into the back of your brain and caress the parts that will forever be warmly receptive to the sounds of Lenny Kaye’s historic Nuggets package, The Chocolate Watch Band, Brian Jones era Stones, The Kinks, The Byrds ca. 65-68, Gary Usher’s mindbending stereo-panning productions and so on and so forth… Paying due reverence to the musical landscape of the paisley coated side of the ‘60s, with a flavour of the ‘90s shoegaze scene, they have retained their own modern identity.

But Mono Stereo exist in the here and now, and not merely exist, but explode into your consciousness, with their glorious musicality, exquisite reference points and fabulous songs that the retro stylings of mere anachronists miss, by dint of their pure blistering power and intensity.

Brothers Jakub (drums and vocals) and Geggan (vocals and rhythm guitar) had relocated to Sweden from Poland to Sweden in1991, and when they got together with Kjelle (lead guitar) and Gunnar (bass) the band began to take shape.

Reference points in the current musical climate are Brian Jonestown Massacre, Black Angels and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, with My Bloody Valentine and Ride casting an influence, through the fish eye lens of mid-sixties psych.

Following the release of their debut EP on UK label 360 Degree Music in November 2009, followed by successful gigs in Malmö and London, the latter including a momentous show with kindred spirits Violens, 2010 began with the band disappearing into the Danish wilderness with sonic mastermind Kramer
