Tax included.

Out 27th November

young marble giants – colossal youth 40th anniversary edition includes the titular album as well as songs from salad days, is the war over, the “final day” single and their testcard ep as well a live dvd of their last ever us show at hurrah in new york in 1980. comprised of guitarist-songwriter stuart moxham, brother and bassist philip, and singer alison statton, ymg emerged from the punk and post-punk landscape with a sound like no one else. recorded in five days, colossal youth went on to influence whole legions from sheffield to seattle, looking to de-grungify gangs of four or more. they found fans in the likes of kurt cobain, courtney love, belle & sebastian, david byrne, sonic youth, the magnetic fields.

cited as one of the most definitive records of the post-punk era, there is something almost canonical about the album’s use of voice, muted instruments and space. colossal youth’s attention to sparse detail is now a modus operandi for haunted electronica auteurs and spectral singer-songwriters alike, but ultimately, only the young marble giants sound like young marble giants.
