2014 reissue. The Monotones were a one-off studio project of Dutch glam rock band Catapult, who decided to move into the dance scene at the end of '70s. Their one and only LP, originally released in 1980, was a positive mixture of obscure Rockets-esque space disco and rock 'n' roll. The pseudo-Russian track "Disco Njet -- Wodka Da" was band's first disco single in 1977 (before Boney M.'s "Rasputin" and Dschinghis Khan's "Moskau"). This reissue includes all six tracks from the original LP plus three instrumental cuts and the minor hit "Cheap Cheap Cheaper" from 1982, newly remastered and collected together for the first time. Pressed on 140-gram audiophile clear vinyl.
