Description

“It’s about noticing the world, not trying to change it”

Wayside & Woodland are immensely excited to be releasing a record from one of the UK’s premiere experimental artists, Richard Youngs.

The premise was simple; instead of offering Richard a style or genre for him to refract through his unique filters and facets, Wayside’s Ben Holton (epic45/My Autumn Empire) offered him a list of sorts, reflecting the ethos of the label as a whole. One of absorbing and reflecting the environment in which we live.

The list included; Degradation of memory, decay, change, loss, the beauty of abandoned buildings and places, post-industrial wastlelands, 'edgelands', 'unofficial countryside', grass verges, woodland between housing estates.

From these somewhat ethereal starting points, Richard set about recording an album.

Memory Ain't No Decay is not a concept album. It is merely the sound of Richard Youngs stretching out over long one chord songjams. On this, possibly his 147th album, Youngsian zero histrionics inform all three tracks.
