年轻大理石巨人是一个后朋克形成乐队卡迪夫他们的音乐中的人声根据各地,威尔士在1978年艾莉森·斯顿与兄弟菲利普和斯图尔特·莫克厄姆的极简仪器一起。他们的早期声音与当时统治地下的更具侵略性的朋克摇滚形成鲜明对比。年轻的大理石巨人在1980年发行了一张完整的录音室专辑《Colossal Youth》。

历史

年轻的大理石巨人是由“ True Wheel”的灰烬组成的,其中还包括朋友Matthew Davis和Louise Porter(后来与EMI签约),Stuart Moxham创作了乐队的大部分歌曲。他们的声音以Phil突出的低音线条,Stuart的节奏吉他(Rickenbacker 425)和Galanti电风琴线条和Statton的人声为特征。斯图尔特·莫克瑟姆(Stuart Moxham)的女友温迪·史密斯(Wendy Smith)借给斯图尔特(Stuart)钱来购买《瑞肯贝克》。史密斯(Smith)是YMG成立之时在加的夫(Cardiff)的艺术系学生,他为乐队的美国巡回演唱会拍照,并为《周末》(Wendend)的几张单曲和专辑设计封面。

在他们成立之初,乐队的第四位成员Peter Joyce是Moxham兄弟的表弟。乔伊斯(Joyce)是一位电话工程师,并且精通电子学,他用套件制作了自己的合成器。它的声音听起来与早期的Roxy Music和Kraftwerk中Eno的合成器相似,后者使用了类似的“低技术/高科技”电子产品。由于他们不希望有鼓手,因此YMG使用了乔伊斯自制鼓机的录音带。他们还对诸如环形调制器和混响单元之类的效果器设备感兴趣,始终强调简单性。

他们的第一个黑胶唱片发行于LP Is The War Over?加的夫DIY标签上,Z座记录,在1979年十月在签约英国独立唱片公司,概略的贸易纪录的YMGs发行两张EP,最后一天和Testcard,和专辑,庞青年(到参考早期希腊 “ Kouroi的大理石雕像,YMG以此名字为灵感。)专辑的艺术品灵感来自披头士乐队的专辑《披头士乐队》。

乐队在欧洲和北美巡回演出,并在柏林,洛杉矶,旧金山,温哥华和纽约演出。巡回演出的同伴包括Cabaret Voltaire乐队。

音乐影响力包括Eno,Kraftwerk,Neil Young,Lou Reed,The Velvet Underground,Roxy Music,David Bowie,Can等。乐队与加的夫本地人Green Gartside的乐队Scritti Politti结识,并签署了相同的标签Rough Trade Records。据透露,在2003年出版的期刊,乐队是,随着该凡士林,库尔特科班的最喜欢的乐队。Courtney Love的乐队Hole报道了年轻的大理石巨人的曲目“真实世界的信用”;他们的歌曲“ The Man Amplifier”的翻唱版本作为b面被收录在The Magnetic Fields的单曲“ Why I Cry”中。斯图尔特·莫克瑟姆(Stuart Moxham)是曼彻斯特吉他演奏家维尼·赖利(Vini Reilly)早期作品的粉丝,并且对配音雷鬼乐也非常感兴趣。Belle和Sebastian和Galaxie 500都涵盖了他们的单曲“ Final Day” ,并被收录在The Pitchfork 500中。

分手后的项目

乐队在1980年分拆后,斯图尔特·莫克瑟姆(Stuart Moxham)创立了The Gist,其歌曲“一见钟情”在法国流行歌手艾蒂安·达荷(ÉtienneDaho)的冠名下以“巴黎,弗洛勒(Paris,Le Flore)”的名字登上了大陆。在一次非常严重的摩托车事故之后,Stuart专注于家庭录音,这导致专辑《Embrace the Herd》(1982年)再次出现在“ Rough Trade”上,以及他的第一张CD专辑《Signal Path》(1992年)出现在芝加哥的Feel Good All Over标签上。歌迷说服他再次进入摄影棚。结果是专辑《Random Rules》(1993年),专辑包括Spike(吉他和中提琴),弟弟Andrew(鼓)和伦敦的法国歌曲作者Louis Philippe(键和安排)。成立了一支乐队来演奏Stuart的新作品,尽管在法国和英国曾短暂演出过。随后是另一张专辑《草丛中的汽车》。斯图尔特还曾在美国录音(专辑《Fine Tuning》和专辑《芭芭拉·曼宁与原始艺术家的合唱》(1993年)中的六首曲目),在那里他获得了一些粉丝。现在位于西方国家的Moxham仍在写歌。2007年5月,新唱片《杂乱的房子》与路易·菲利普二重奏录制,他定期与他合唱,并在Wonder Records上发行。

艾莉森·斯坦顿(Alison Statton),斯派克(Spike)和西蒙·埃默森(Simon Emmerson)(《工作周》和《非裔凯尔特人》(Afro Celt)音响系统的后来者)组成了《周末》(Phil Moxham担任低音提琴),爵士乐手包括拉里·史达宾斯,哈里·贝克特和基思·蒂皮特。

1989年至1990年,艾莉森·斯坦顿(Alison Statton)与后朋克乐队Ludus的前吉他手Ian Devine合作。他们发布了两个记录一起,威尔士王子和Cardiffians。Tuxedomoon的 Blaine L. Reininger 演奏了手风琴。

后来,菲利普·莫克瑟姆(Philip Moxham)为《公社》和《除女孩之外的一切》演奏贝斯。他在他们的第四张专辑Idlewild中演出。他还与David Thomas和行人一起工作。

改革

2003年初,斯坦顿和莫克瑟姆兄弟团聚,参加了BBC威尔士广播电台的特别节目。他们在此特别节目中演唱了一首新歌“好”。

团聚节目在苏州举行的Hay-on-Wye的于2007年5月27日,该部分的Hay-on-Wye的节日,与斯图尔特·莫克厄姆的网站上解释:“年轻的大理石巨头改革一次性庆祝的多米诺纪录 “重新发布他们的专辑《Colossal Youth》,并与Lo-Fi并以3张CD打包在一起,并发行了Salad Days专辑的私人参考唱片,以及否则无法获得的Peel Sessions。”

Hay-on-Wye不是一次性的。受订票公司说服,乐队还于2007年10月28日在巴黎郊外的布洛涅·比扬古(Boulogne Billancourt)参加了BB-Mix音乐节的演出。鼓机部分由年轻的莫克瑟姆兄弟安德鲁(Andrew)演奏,他演奏了电子鼓。

乐队在此期间继续演出,包括在2008年5月31日的Primavera声音节和2009年1月16日在柏林的Hebbel Am Ufer(HAU)剧院演出。YMG 在2008年的All Tomorrow的聚会上演奏了《巨大青年》的全部曲目。迈恩黑德,萨默塞特,于2009年5月9日-它们被选择杰夫·曼格姆的中性牛奶饭店在所有明天的缔约方节日回归的表现,他在2012年3月在曼海德策划。

2016年6月8日,Stuart Moxham在乐队的Facebook页面上写道,乐队不再存在。青年大理石巨人的最后一场演出是2015年8月在伦敦。

Young Marble Giants were a post-punk band formed in Cardiff, Wales in 1978. Their music was based around the vocals of Alison Statton along with the minimalist instrumentation of brothers Philip and Stuart Moxham. Their early sound was a sharp contrast with the more aggressive punk rock that dominated the underground at the time. Young Marble Giants released just one full-length studio album, Colossal Youth, in 1980.

History

Young Marble Giants were formed from the ashes of ‘True Wheel’ which also included friends Matthew Davis and Louise Porter (later signed to EMI) Stuart Moxham wrote the majority of the band’s songs. Their sound was characterised by Phil’s prominent bass lines, Stuart’s rhythm guitar (a Rickenbacker 425) and Galanti electric organ lines and Statton’s vocals. Stuart Moxham’s girlfriend, Wendy Smith, lent Stuart the money to buy the Rickenbacker. Smith, an art student in Cardiff at the time the YMG’s were forming, photographed the band’s US tour and also designed cover art for several singles and albums by Weekend.

Very early in their existence, there was a fourth member of the band, Peter Joyce, who was a cousin of the Moxham brothers. Joyce was a telephone engineer and skilled at electronics, who had made his own synthesiser from a kit. It made sounds similar to Eno’s synths in the early Roxy Music and Kraftwerk, who employed similar ‘low-tech/high-tech’ electronics. The YMGs used tape recordings of Joyce’s home-made drum machine since they did not wish to have a drummer. They were also interested in effects devices such as ring modulators and reverb units, with the emphasis always on simplicity.

Their first vinyl release was on the compilation LP Is The War Over? on Cardiff DIY label, Z Block Records, in October 1979. While signed to UK independent record label, Rough Trade Records the YMGs released two EPs, Final Day and Testcard, and an album, Colossal Youth (a reference to the Early Greek ‘Kouroi’ marble statues, from which the YMGs took the inspiration for their name.) The artwork of the album was inspired by the Beatles album With the Beatles.

The band toured Europe and North America and played in Berlin, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vancouver and New York. Touring companions included the band Cabaret Voltaire.

Musical influences included Eno, Kraftwerk, Neil Young, Lou Reed, The Velvet Underground, Roxy Music, David Bowie, Can and others. The band were acquainted with Scritti Politti, the band of Cardiff native Green Gartside, and signed to the same label, Rough Trade Records. It was revealed in the 2003 book Journals that the band were, along with The Vaselines, Kurt Cobain’s favourite band. Courtney Love’s band Hole covered the Young Marble Giants track “Credit In The Straight World”; a cover version of their song “The Man Amplifier” was included on The Magnetic Fields single “Why I Cry” as a b-side. Stuart Moxham was a fan of Manchester guitarist Vini Reilly’s early work, and was also very interested in dub reggae. Their single “Final Day” was covered by both Belle and Sebastian and Galaxie 500, and was included in The Pitchfork 500.

Post-breakup projects

After the band split up in 1980, Stuart Moxham formed The Gist, whose song ‘Love at First Sight’ became a hit on the continent when covered by French pop singer Étienne Daho under the title ‘Paris, Le Flore’. Following a very severe motorbike accident Stuart concentrated on home recording, which resulted in the album Embrace the Herd (1982) again on Rough Trade, and his first CD album Signal Path (1992) on the Chicago-based Feel Good All Over label, before fans persuaded him to enter the studio again. The result was the album Random Rules (1993) and featured Spike (guitar & viola), younger brother Andrew (drums) and London-based French songwriter Louis Philippe (keys & arrangements). A band was formed to perform Stuart’s new material, which gigged, albeit briefly, in France and the UK. Another album, Cars in the Grass, followed. Stuart had also been recording in the USA (the album Fine Tuning and six tracks on the album Barbara Manning Sings With The Original Artists (1993)), where he has acquired a small fanbase. Now based in the West Country, Moxham is still writing songs. A new album, The Huddle House, recorded as a duet with Louis Philippe, with whom he’s regularly performed, was released on Wonder Records in May 2007.

Alison Statton, Spike and Simon Emmerson (later of Working Week and Afro Celt Sound System) formed Weekend (with Phil Moxham on bass) and several jazz musicians including Larry Stabbins, Harry Beckett and Keith Tippett.

In 1989 – 1990, Alison Statton worked with Ian Devine, the former guitarist of the post-punk group Ludus. They released two records together, The Prince of Wales and Cardiffians. Blaine L. Reininger of Tuxedomoon played accordion on the record.

Later, Philip Moxham played bass for The Communards and Everything but the Girl. He features on their fourth album, Idlewild. He also worked with David Thomas and the Pedestrians.

Reformation

In early 2003, Statton and the Moxham brothers reunited for a BBC Radio Wales radio special. They performed one new song, “Alright,” on this special.

A reunion show was held in Hay-on-Wye on 27 May 2007, part of the Hay-on-Wye Festival, with Stuart Moxham’s website explaining: “Young Marble Giants reform for a one-off celebration of Domino Records’ re-release of their album Colossal Youth, combined in a 3 CD package with the Lo-Fi, private reference recordings of the Salad Days album and the otherwise unobtainable Peel Sessions.”

Hay-on-Wye was not a one-off. Convinced by the booking agency, the band also played a show for the BB-Mix Festival in Boulogne Billancourt, just outside Paris, on 28 October 2007. The drum-machine part was played by younger Moxham brother Andrew who played an electronic-drumkit.

The band continued to perform over this period, including appearances at the Primavera Sound Festival on 31st May 2008 and at the Hebbel Am Ufer (HAU) Theatre in Berlin on 16th January 2009. The YMGs played the entirety of Colossal Youth at All Tomorrow’s Parties in Minehead, Somerset, on 9 May 2009 – they were chosen by Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel for a return performance at the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival that he curated in March 2012 in Minehead.

The band played gigs at the Dancehouse Theatre in Manchester on 19 October 2014 and Stereo in Glasgow on 20 October.

They also performed at the MIMI Festival, on the Frioul Island in Marseille, on 3 July 2015.

On 8 June 2016, Stuart Moxham wrote on the band’s Facebook page that the band was no more. Young Marble Giants’ last show was in London in August 2015.
