You could also try one of the √Čl/Cherry Red compilations "Westminster Affair" or the 2CD "Chaps" which features some later stuff as well.

The thing you get with The Monochrome Set is a marvellous affection for pop that bizarrely verges on boredom. They get a minute and a half into a song, then change style for 16 bars before veering back to the song. Usually, the style change is instrumental, and so you get one of Lester Square's instrumentals jammed into the middle of one of Bid's songs.

Brilliant - can't recommend them highly enough!
