Richard Youngs - Cavalcades
Sonic Oyster Records (SOR051)
Limited Edition of 50 CDR
Release Date: 6th March 2017

"A circle's circumference can be traced clockwise or counter-clockwise. Similarly a cymbal's edge can be brushed clockwise or counter-clockwise. That's how I started. The concept initially seemed high enough to carry an entire two pieces of music. But then, creative drift set in and two pieces became three. In truth, clockwise or counterclockwise made not a jot of difference. If clockwise was the thesis, counter-clockwise the antithesis, couldn't-give-a-fuck was the synthesis. And then, why just brush the cymbal? Why just a cymbal? Everything became possible, and Cavalcades was recorded." Richard Youngs

  1. I got this in Mono yesterday and in addition to being really good it has no titles for the tracks.
    In lieu of this I have entitled them
    1. Clockwise
    2. Counter-clockwise
    3. Couldn't-give-fuck-wise
    I hope I am not misrepresenting matters.
    Best Regards
    Johnny
