A pioneer of industrial and noise music, Philip Johnson has been releasing his own deranged compositions since the 1970s, creating sounds that could at times be gorgeous, at others crafting soundscapes that were uninhabitable. 'Youth In Morning' was originally released in 1982, a collection of jarring field sounds and blustery percussion, with aggressive spoken word filtered on top or otherwise buried in the rubble. Johnson's poetry often meta-analysed the indie scene around him -- calling out people for being "fuckin' liars" -- and occasionally told eerie but intricate narratives, such as on "The Karate Kicking Of New Invention".
