Amazing sound and an intimate performance. A must see for fans of this classic era. Check Libin’s youtube page for further rarities from Gang of Four, Lizzy Mercier Descloux, Suicide, The Plastics, Polyrock, Snatch, and James White And The Blacks with Debbie Harry!
Having posted several other Country Teasers videos, I’m always surprised at how many views they end up receiving. It’s not like they are a particularly well known band, but those of us who love them, obviously cannot get enough.
It’s just two LPs, 1979’s eponymous debut and 1981’s, Deceit, alongside the EP, Health and Efficiency, that appeared between the two. All I can say is that it’s about time This Heat received an official US release.
Today would have been guitarist Jo Dunne’s 47th birthday, had she not tragically succumbed to cancer two years ago. I will fondly remember Dunne for her contribution to the first Fuzzbox (back when the used the full We’ve Got A Fuzzbox And We’re Gonna Use It, moniker) single, Rules and Regulations, which I purchased on 12″, with an etched b-side, when it was released. Loved it then, love it now. Oh yeah, watch the videos and dig on their fun, oh-so-80’s, UK street punk/wave fashion sense.
Black and white, one camera, great sound and insanely intimate, this footage captures all your Young Marble Giants faves. I’m as totally enamored now as I was upon first hearing Colossal Youth. No one does it like YMG.
