About The Parish News

The Parish News is an experimental radio show that plays the best in new and avant-garde music, Field Recordings and Sound Art.

The Parish News is a weekly experimental radio show & podcast that is aired internationally. Hosted by self-confessed radio geek, Andrew Backhouse, the show plays avant-garde and unusual music such as field recordings and noise.

Andy trawls the underbelly of the art world to bring you sounds you have not heard before. Working closely with the artists and labels, tracks are selected that are the most fitting with the current global trends and artistic direction. While the presenting style is pretty crap, the music is always spot on.

If you dig the show and want to say ‘thanks’ to Andrew – you can buy him a coffee HERE.
