This in from Glen Martin:
Quite note to inform y’all that Mark Monnone, formerly of the Lucksmiths, will be in town on Wednesday Oct 10 to play a little show at Smiths. Support comes from self (in solo ‘Glenroi Heights’ mode) and Andy Star (of Holden Caufield fame). I think tickets will be an awkward yet cheap $7 on the door.
Mess & Noise said this about Monnone Alone
In brief: A longtime solo outlet for its namesake founder – also of Last Leaves and the global roster of Still Flyin’ – Monnone Alone has finally recorded a debut LP, Together At Last due early next year on Monnone’s Lost & Lonesome label. Apart from collaborations with friends all over the world, the band’s live version includes Connal Parsley (Francis Plagne) and Gus Franklin (Architecture in Helsinki, The Smallgoods). As for the music, it’s classic indie pop with groggy vocals worthy of Stephen Pastel.http://messandnoise.com/articles/4517534
