5. Young Marble Giants ‘Colossal Youth’

Dean ‘Apparently this album was recorded in three days (the same amount of time that we spent on Galaxie 500’s Today LP). There has never been anything else like it. My friend Dave Rick once said to me that if a band sounds like no other band you’ve ever heard, then they must automatically be good. He may be wrong but this one illustrates his point.’
