The YMG's were one of the most idiosyncratic groups in that crazy, mixed-up world that was post-punk. Their style was entirely original, without any visible touchstones. They stripped songs down to their barest essentials. A simple guitar strum, an organ whine and a clicking drum machine was all that was needed, making a chilly, atmospheric kind of pop. Add to that, Allison Statton's approach to vocals was an emotionally detatched, cool style, that only added to the creepy factor. They released one album, Colossal Youth and three EPs. The EPs were later put on the album, and reissued. Their incredibly small oeuvre has proved massively influential, and was one of post-punk's first cohesive statements.
