Philip Johnson - Youth in Mourning

Philip Johnson, a lost figure in the dark waters of early industrial music in the UK, self-released over 25 tapes starting in the late ’70s. Ethereal soundscapes, damaged electronics and undanceable 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.

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.
