Synopsis

Album Description
Young Marble Giants appeared on the British music scene in the early 80s, releasing one perfect album and a handful of tracks. All those songs, as well as album demos, are collected here for the first time. A must-have for fans of The Slits, Pere Ubu, Wire, Suicide, PiL, and the Pop Group. Since 1980, YMG have influenced countless bands as disparate as Belle & Sebastian and Hole (both of whom have covered the group's songs). This deluxe 3xCD package is the definitive collection and includes liner notes from Simon Reynolds, a bonus disc of an unreleased John Peel Session, and a 32-page booklet of unpublished photos, old gig posters, and other publicity memorabilia.

"I loved the Collosal Youth album back in the early 80's and to now have this collection is vital. A classic album the music haunts my memories past and present. If music were this beautiful then lot's of the over produced stuff today would be better off. Raw and ripe this music bites and allows you to join the taste.
