All Music Guide:
Christian Savill and Sean Hewson, a London-based indie rock duo, have been playing together under various names since 1989, including a brief stint as the Eternal, a band that released one single on the Sarah label. Savill, who was also in Slowdive, decided to start playing again with Hewson in 2000 as Monster Movie, most likely naming themselves after the Can album of the same name. Since debuting in 2001 with a five-track EP on Clairecords, they've released a handful of EPs and albums, including Last Night Something Happened (2001), a split EP with Dreamend (2002), Transistor (2004), To the Moon (2004), All Lost (2006), and Everyone Is A Ghost (2010). Their recordings have drifted between neo-shoegaze, straight-up indie pop, and synth-driven material inspired by the Factory label's dance-oriented sect (Section 25, New Order).
