EMBRACE THE HERD – FEATURING MEMBERS OF YOUNG MARBLE GIANTS
Twenty-nine years after its release, Young Marble Giants’ legendary ‘Colossal Youth’ remains a landmark in post-punk music, an enigma of its own, acclaimed by musicians and audience over the years. Formed in 1978 in Cardiff, the trio’s music was constructed around the powerful and minimal instrumentation of brothers Philip and Stuart Moxham on bass and guitar, supporting the naive untrained vocals of Alison Statton. The band split in 1980, reformed in 2006 for a world-wide serie of amazing shows (with Julie Tippex!) and called it a day in 2015. Well, here’s news: Following the reissues by the label Tiny Global Productions of The Gist (Stuart’s band in the 1980s) and Alison and Spike’s new album, they decided to go back on the road next Spring. EMBRACE THE HERD featuring Stuart, Alison and Spike will perform a best-of set their whole career.
