Though misunderstood at the time of its initial release in 1981, the years have been kind to Beach Party and it is now regarded as one of the more important albums of fractured UK twee pop and minimalist post-punk, alongside The Young Marble Giants' classic, Colossal Youth. Formed in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, Marine Girls were an all-female group formed by school friends including Tracey Thorn, before she found international success with Ben Watt in Everything But The Girl. Another classic LP of British weirdness reissued on Cherry Red.
