Born in Cambridge and raised in the Fens, Richard Youngs began making music at the start of the seventies. His early work centred on the family piano. When this was sold in the late seventies, however, the classical guitar and cassette recorder became his instruments of choice, along with anything at hand that made a sound. From then on he has played any number of roles with bands such as Astral Social Club, Concrete Hedge, No Deserts, Jandek and Future Pilot A.K.A. Recent collaborative work with Andrew Paine, Heatsick, Kawabata Makoto and John Clyde-Evans also show him as a highly social musician.


Since escaping the confines of a small seaside town and burrowing themselves into the UK’S DIY scene, Spectres have swelled into an uncompromising beast. Harnessing the negative reactions from baffled crowds, and finding influences in the more depraved bowels of guitar music (Sister- era Sonic Youth, A Place To Bury Strangers’ total sonic annihilation and Royal Trux’s squalid, filthy noise on Twin Infinitives, to name just a few) as well as harsh electronic experimentalism, the band have managed to crossover into territories where noise music is usually never mentioned.

2015 saw the release of their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Dying’, the reaction of which lead them to spew their noise all over Europe and back again, whilst finding the time to record an alternative James Bond theme, release one 7″ every single day as part of the Howling Owl & Sonic Cathedral ‘Record Store Day Is Dying’ campaign as well as preparing ‘DEAD’ the newly announced record which is a total reworking of their debut, with contributions from Mogwai, Factory Floor, Loop, Hookworms, Richard Fearless + many more, released in March.


Following once again the good old rule of associating two extremes instead of choosing the middle path, Manu Louis collides the exotic and glamorous Pop Music of his youth with the naff sounds of the native Western Europe folk trash he always did his best to ignore (brass bands, Euro-Dance, Industrial Trance and old-one-man-synth-wedding entertainers…)
In October, he released a first single (7′ vinyl) under the berlin label New Pangea (premiering on of his up-coming album described by Felix Kubin as «really fun(k)y and clever and playful music and I’d be happy to hear it in the aquarium of the deep sea club anytime. »
Kermesse Machine is a mountain of plastic glasses in the streets the morning after, a tropical digital marching band, a guy giving all he’s got at Karaoke because there’s nowhere left to sing, a gypsy virtuoso playing synth with a trumpet sound.
Since 2015, he performed solo more than 100 times everywhere in  Europe and Asia accompanied by a crowd of electronic instruments and video projections.

Thank you.

All the best.
