Top 50 Debut Albums - No.47 "Colossal Youth" Young Marble Giants (1980)

The Welsh new wave band's only album but they absolutely nailed it first time.

I only discovered Young Marble Giants last year, after Colossal Youth won an LP Group listening session vote for "one album wonders".

I don't have a lot to say as it's still a fairly new album for me but I love the sparse instrumentation and the way that compliments Alison Statton's vocals. I know the album was one of Kurt Cobain's favourites and I can see how influential this must have been on many of the bands and artists I love.
