The Chaucer Years

Turds of the Reformation – The Chaucer Years

‘The Chaucer Years’ is a live recording, taken from a session on Radiophrenia, 2017.

Radiophrenia was a temporary art radio station – a two-week exploration into current trends in sound and transmission arts. It was broadcast live from Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts, aiming to promote radio as an art form, encouraging challenging and radical new approaches to the medium.

‘The Chaucer years’ features Richard Youngs as ‘gunslinger for hire’. He is credited as ‘Richard the Turd’ on the album.

Strong Belgian beer was consumed during the recording of this session, which may account for the looseness of the material.
