Mono - The Monotones

During the Seventies Aart Mol, Geertjan Hessing, Erwin van Prehn, Cees Bergman and Elmer Veerhoff were members of the successful group Catapult. When success eluded them they decided to start over as Rubberen Robbie, a group specializing in Dutch music, and The Monotones, making new wave music.

In January 1980 the Monotones release the single 'Mono', a track that sounds a bit like 'Popmuzik' and 'Video killed the radio star'. They are rewarded with a number 15 placing in the Dutch Top 40.

My collection: 7" single no. 3327
Found: Record fair, Utrecht, March 24, 2001
