Wasted Youth
There's a brilliant piece in the San Francisco Bay Guardian by Ken Taylor this week about the criminally overlooked Welsh post-punk trio Young Marble Giants.

He says:
"Within a moment of listening to Colossal Youth, the embarrassment of having missed out on them the first time around gave way to complete satisfaction and a feeling that I'd just been let in on a terribly scandalous secret."

I can only agree with this as I felt the same upon discovering the band a couple of years ago. And yet they are still virtually unknown. They released one album Colossal Youth and a couple of EPs in the early 80s, before dissolving.
