Monro Stahr

Abigail Ward (vocals/guitar), Rebecca Ward (keys), David Hancox (guitar), Paul Fleury (bass), Simon Delamar (drums) and Dug Clayton (keys). Influences: Roxy Music, Rainbow, Stranglers, Morricone. Named after F. Scott Fitzgerald's 'Last Tycoon', Monro Stahr ploughed a messy prog-pop furrow before imploding in 2001 in a pool of irony and self-loathing. Renowned for on-stage hi-jinks and implausible time signatures, their regrettably-titled debut album, 'Style Over Content' was Number 1 for six weeks all over Chorlton.
