Includes download code

Young Marble Giants’ one and only album ‘Colossal Youth’ celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, the Cardiff trio are releasing a special edition reissue.
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, plus 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 and The Magnetic Fields.
