I first heard Mono music used in the 1998 film version of Great Expectations.  Soon after, this album was in my collection and was transferred to cassette for play in the car.  As I recall it featured at least two or three other memorable tracks.  Then as my cassette collection became obsolete, I had almost forgotten about Mono.  Thank you Bill for bringing back good memories by playing this song.  Radio Paradise is the only place that I've heard this band since.

This just came on and I said to myself "Ooh, what's this? I'll have to got to RP website, get info, comment and rate"
Turns out I've already heard it and rated it(7).
I must now bump to 8. :-)

(edit) OK, I'm  a real knucklehead. I just scrolled though the comments and found that I've done these same exact actions once  before!
I'm totally creeped out now.

Appropriate name 'MONO'  as thats all it is ... but not even worthy of a 1, Apologies for the negative comment but I had to look up who was responsible. Not often I hit the Off button here on RP but this is one of them.Truely Yucksville.

Same country and same time period.  There were a lot of comparisons of Mono to Portishead back in those days (i.e., use of film-track samples, odd sound effects).

I was surprised to learn that Burt Bacharach and Hal David (among others) wrote this song. I have missed so much good music, stereotyping artists. Thank you (again!) RP.

Never heard this.
I like it. 
Edit: just looked back at the comments and apparently I HAVE heard this before...and didn't like it so much.
I guess mood and situation have much to do with it.

It was cancelled after the fourth season. There was a campaign to bring it back for "closure," and WB dubiously gave it eight episodes, with limited appearances by various cast members. All five seasons are on DVD now, and are pretty much intact, except for one song that the artist refused to allow, so a substitution had to be made.

If it's in syndication anywhere, I have yet to see it... WB totally mishandled that series from the start - no promotion, and when they were contacted regarding the cancellation, they responded with, "Do we have that one?" When it was airing, WB and USA Network tossed blame back and forth - neither claimed to have any responsibility for it. It was a great show that, unfortunately, fell through the cracks because of network ignorance.

Sorry - LFN is a pet love of mine - I was involved with the online rescue for a fifth season. I guess that makes me a good/bad guy. {#Lol}

Harvey, Neko Case, Mandalay, Chainsuck, Big Sugar, Beth Orton, Filter, David Silvian, Rose Chronicles, In the Nursery, Stereolab, Cream, Autour de Lucie, Gus Gus, Philosopher Kings...

That show opened a whole new world of music for me. I met a few of the vital forces behind it, and Sean Callery (who did the music for "24") was amazing.  I danced to Rhea's Obsession as they played, and Sue autographed my CD - they're such an amazing band!

Yeah, LFN is still a big part of my life, though the show was totally mismanaged by WB. At one point, I called to inquire about the status of the series, and was told, "Is that one of ours?" GUH!

Sorry to ramble - I got finished with my work day, am done with my household chores, and I guess I'm sort of rejoicing that I actually have time to write here.

I immediately thought of Nikita as well. One of my favorite series of all time, and the soundtrack from it is phenomenal.

Who's on this jury? Curious. Do they sell their souls to network TV as in the U-S? Or do they remain anonymous as in Canada? Any hung? Oh, as soon as I typed that in, I knew I was in trouble. Forget it.
