Richard Youngs: Advent (reissue)
Originally released in 1990 in the vinyl format on Youngs' own No Fans label, this title has been reissued numerous times in the CD format (most recently by Jagjaguwar.) Jagjaguwar is now proud to reissue this very important work on viny as well. Advent became a true underground success story, a critical darling, with Alan Licht, for example, putting it on his "minimal top ten list" in the publication Halana. "It is a record by an intense young man," writes Richard Youngs, in an essay packaged with the record.
"A three-part composition for piano, voice, and ultra-nasty oboe and electric guitar, Advent indicated signs of life in a genre long dormant in the 80s 'experimental' scene. It continues the tradition from [Terry Riley's] Reed Streams on down with gusto."-Alan Licht's "Minimal Top Ten List", Halana
