Something for the Weekend



Amazing how something so quiet and introverted could be so radical, but Young Marble Giants were revolutionary at a time when every other band was being shouty and noisy. I remember being hypnotised the first time I heard them on John Peel and they still sound remarkable.

    Seeing them at Dingwalls in February. I’m going to have to put them on repeat before then to avoid giving my wife more evidence that (musically at least) she made the wrong choice.

    Two questions:

    They’re back together?

    Dingwalls is still open???

    I think I’m more surprised by the second one.

    Young! Marble! Giants! never had a band a better name according to their music. One of the greatest records ever. Never heard any fragile sound like this again (exept Cowboy Junkies). And yes – Allison is wonderful
