Dennis Young
Portastudio Ambient Tapes

After the break-up of seminal punk-funkers Liquid Liquid, band member Dennis Young found himself at a bit of a loose end. He busied himself by making funny little new age/ambient creations in his bedroom on some synths and a Tascam tape recorder. Many of these curios have never seen light of day, so it’s a real treat that Inner Mood have managed to lock down a trio of tracks for the Portastudio Ambient Tapes. These are gorgeous, often beatific pieces that touch on Arthur Russell’s dubby Balearia.

Dennis Young
Sojourn / Release

Dennis Young, one of the percussionists in the legendark post-punk/art-wave group Liquid Liquid, recorded a number of tape only releases for Daehan Electronics in the 80s after his band broke up. On Sojourn / Release label and musician worked to restore this lost New Age masterpiece, which Young recorded on old analogue synths. 

Dennis Young
Visions / Release

Liquid Liquid were one of the greatest bands to come out of 80s New York. After the band's end percussionist Dennis Young released a couple of cassette only albums with experimental South Korean label Daehan Electronics. On Visions / Release brings Young's skill at making you dance and plants in firmly in the world of new age. 

Dennis Young
Primitive Substance

Dennis Young began work on the Primitive Substance LP with Andy Gomory in the second half of the 1980’s, laying down basic tracks at Gomory’s studio in New Jersey. Over the next fifteen-odd years the ex-Liquid Liquid fellow Young continued to expand the material, bringing in various guests to build on the vaguely fourth-world-ish rhythm tracks he’d laid down with Gomory. The resulting record, only now getting a release through Athens Of The North (J.O.B. Band, Brief Encounter), is a funny mix of New Age grooves and jazz-fusion techniques. Think My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts.

Dennis Young
Quest

After Liquid Liquid disbanded in 1983, percussionist/marimba player Dennis Young started working on a series of New Age-y solo records. Some of these were released as small cassette runs in South Korea. Now the archivists at Daehan Electronics have dusted off the original tapes and are planning a series of reissues that will also feature previously unheard material from Young. The run kicks off with the dreamy synthetic ambiences of Quest.

Liquid Liquid
Optimo

Legendary post-punkers Liquid Liquid reached a peak of dance-floor intensity with Optimo, their 1983 EP. Reissued here on wax it’s a timely reminder of the New York band’s high-quality output and influence on future dance-punk outfits through the years. Out on vinyl 12” from Superior Viaduct.

Liquid Liquid
Liquid Liquid

A truly iconic piece of work from New York’s post-punk pioneers Liquid Liquid. Equal parts avant-garde and dance-floor oriented, this debut EP remains remarkably relevant in its single-minded pursuit of urgency. Uncompromising yet eminently welcoming at every turn. Out on vinyl 12” from Superior Viaduct.

Liquid Liquid
Successive Reflexes

A handful of Liquid Liquid releases get the reissue treatment this year thanks to Superior Viaduct. Successive Reflexes quickly followed their 1981 debut and showcased a deep knowledge and appreciation for afrobeat, riding out grooves with meticulous attention to detail. Out on vinyl 12” from Superior Viaduct.
