Young Marble Giants - Final Day


On this date in 1980, Young Marble Giants released their debut single, "Final Day". It was supported by "Radio Silents" and "Cakewalking". None of these tracks appeared on their only album, Colossal Youth, but they were all added when the album was re-released on CD. The Cardiff, Wales post punk band released one album and two EP's before disbanding in 1981. Philip Moxham was later in The Communards and Everything But The Girl. They have gotten back together to do some recent touring.
