Best known as the articulate and feather-light voice of Young Marble Giants, Alison Statton was in several recording projects after the demise of that cultish post-punk band. Shortly after the breakup of her first major band, she formed Weekend with a couple of fellow Cardiff natives, who released a full record and a batch of singles. Around the same time, she appeared on some of the Gist's recordings, a group helmed by former YMG mate Stuart Moxham. During the mid-'80s, she took an extended break from music, reappearing toward the end of the decade with a number of records and singles completed with Ian Devine under the Devine and Statton moniker. Throughout the '90s, she released a batch of recordings with Weekend's Spike as Alison Statton & Spike. ~ Andy Kellman
