Incubate starts tomorrow: Richard Youngs

Good, it’s almost here again: Incubate. But with so many artists, what to see? Allow me to be your digital flashlight in this dark cave filled with underground music and together we will count down the next 33 days with 33 short artist recommendations.

Richard Youngs
Sat, 18th       20:15 -21:00       Pauluskerk Richard Youngs is a highly versatile and experimental artist. He has been releasing and performing music since the early 80s. His work ranges from the affecting Sapphie (a lament for his dog) to the strange humor of Lake (recorded over 3 days in 1990 with Simon Wickham-Smith). However, his recent high point must be his bass playing duties in concert with Jandek.
