And one crazy Pennslyvania / New Jersey tour in July 2001 that resulted in a Cakewalk being dominated by the band and entourage.

2. Latest album by Monty (UK)
When the Dubious Brothers disbanded in 1990 (a best of collection was put out by Plastilina Records in 2009), Monty put on his velvet jacket and launched a solo career, signing to Humbug records in the UK and Jade Music (Midi Mitsubishi) in Japan. He pioneered the mid-nineties lounge scene in the UK with his Bond/Bacharach inspired lush sound, but as usual was years ahead of his time and so kept a dignified silence, leaving the cheesiness to others. His first two solo albums, "A Typical Scorpio" and "The Napoleon Complex" were well received by the press and remain cult classics. He made a video of "A typical Scorpio's" best song, I'm Spartacus.
He toured Japan in 1993 with the Monochrome Set to the delight and bemusement of a whole new generation of fans. During this time, Monty came to the attention of guru, svengali and impressario, Mike Alway of the extraordinary?l records and Monty became one of the in house writers and contributors for several of ?l's classic records. Monty also wrote and contributed songs to Mike and Jim Phelan's startlingly successful exotica football label and later on wrote many "songs" for the Cherry Red football catalogue. He also wrote some classic songs for Keigo Oyemada's (Cornelius) Trattoria label (through Polystar) in Tokyo. However, In 1994 he reached his zenith/nadir as a producer when he arranged and produced (with Toby Robinson and Alec Dippie) "Classical Punk" (known in the USA as "Symphony of Destruction") for MCI/Demon. The album, a string orchestra playing all your punk rock favourites had an immediate Marmite effect on the music industry and fans alike: you either loved it or you hated it.
Throughout this time Monty wrote and produced TV and Radio themes for the likes of Jack Dee, Harry Hill and Chris Tarrant. Now he has gone darker with the "The Judas Window" (available from CD Baby in the USA and Cherry Red in Europe), he remembers these confectionary treats with great afftection.
