Description

Youth in Mourning on LP

Vinyl LP repressing of this 1982 album including digital download. Philip Johnson, a lost figure in the dark waters of early industrial music, self-released over 25 tapes starting in the late '70s. As a part of the cassette culture in the UK, he produced ethereal soundscapes, damaged electronics and un-danceable drum patterns, along with homemade j-cards. For his first and only LP, 1982's YOUTH IN MOURNING, Johnson further refined his approach with mesmerizing audio collages and Mark-E-Smith-ian vocals to make one of the most unique documents of the era. YOUTH IN MOURNING is a personal record, yet fearless. It pulls back the bedroom curtain, revealing (as Johnson writes in the liner notes) 'the sound of a warm-air heater on a cold afternoon and a cassette being pushed into the deck and switched on.' This first-time reissue comes from the original master tapes. Recommended for fans of Cabaret Voltaire, John Bender and the Shadow Ring.
