Galaxie 500 covering Young Marble Giants – Dean vs Naomi

I was lucky enough to see the rather fab Young Marble Giants playing one of their all too rare gigs in London last night (a few crappy pictures here but none worth embedding on this page) – half way through a set of familiar gems was the one gem that was more familiar than any of the others…

Here’s Dean singing it as released on Uncollected

Here’s Naomi singing it as recorded for their 1990 Peel Session

Which do you prefer… I, of course, love them both equally!

And, pre-empting its appearance in my Originals posts in a couple of months time… if you’ve never heard the fantastic original…

    1. I believe it was one of the “rarities” that made its first appearance on the Box Set – don’t have my booklet to hand to remind myself of when it was recorded and why it never got officially released until 1996 – I’d guess for This Is Our Music sessions.
