RICHARD YOUNGS Co-headlines Full of Noises Festival in the UK

In October music fans will have the chance to experience RICHARD YOUNGS’ sonic artwork when he performs as a headliner at the Full of Noises festival among the shipyards of Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria. The festival, billed as a new international festival of contemporary music and sound art, is about new work, new audiences and new creative partnerships. The festival site in the heart of Barrow’s shipyard offers an ideal setting for site–specific sonic artwork, with the unique layout of the building leading to a blurring of the distinction between workspace and performance space. Youngs headlines on Friday, October 23, but sonic exhibits, art installations and other performances will round out the week. For festival tickets and more information visit the F.O.N. festival site HERE.

New house and techno-inspired RICHARD YOUNGS LP, Like A Neuron, Now Available On Dekorder Label

RICHARD YOUNGS’ house and techno-inspired LP, Like A Neuron, is now available through the Dekorder label, which said of the release: “The final outcome sounds like recordings made by aliens who have received transmissions about House Music but never listened to the music itself. The album reminds of the sound of hallways/corridors inbetween large House parties where you can hear the music from several floors collide. While it’s an emulation, interpretation or replica of House Music, it’s still managing to evoke similar feelings even though some might find it difficult to dance to the music.”

RICHARD YOUNGS featured on Lal Waterson tribute comp

RICHARD YOUNGS has contributed a track to “Migrating Bird: The Songs Of Lal Waterson”, which was recently released on Honest Jon’s Records. He is in good company, the album also features such luminaries as Michael Hurley, Alasdair Roberts, and Vashti Bunyan, to name a few. Richard covers the song “The Welcome Sailor”.

Lal Waterson was an English folk singer who played an important role in the resurgence of interest in traditional British folk songs for more than four decades. She and her brother, sister and second cousin formed The Watersons in the early 60s. The group released a trio of groundbreaking folk albums, including “Frost and Fire”, which was named Best Folk Album of 1965 by Melody Maker. She continued to record music throughout her life, though she was forced by illness to retire from touring in 1981. She succumbed to cancer in 1998.
