Young Marble Giants
Last updated: 18 November 2008
Young Marble Giants were a three piece post-punk group from Cardiff. Although they were only together for a couple of years, they made a mark on the Welsh music scene, and influenced a number of musicians.
They formed when Stuart Moxham returned to South Wales from living in Germany. With his brother Phil he joined cover bands, one of which - True Wheel - featured backing vocalist Alison Statton. Stuart decided to put together a new band, and recruited Phil and Alison.
The name Young Marble Giants was taken from a book describing kouros, ancient Greek statues representing youth.
