York House Recordings, also known as YHR or YHR Tapes, was a small British independent label which released 31 original cassettes of industrial, electronic, experimental, avant-garde, and dark ambient music between 1979 and 1983.

History

York House Recordings was founded by David Elliott, who also published a magazine called Neumusik. Elliott put out a series of cassettes in parallel with the magazine featuring artists from all over the world.[1]

YHR released music by Cluster & Farnbauer (Live In Vienna) and Asmus Tietchens (Musik aus der Grauzone and Musik An Der Grenze)[2][3] which had been rejected as too unusual by Sky Records. Other notable artists with releases by YHR include Maurizio Bianchi, Günter Schickert, Andrew Cox, Peter Schafer, Paul Nagle, Duallien, and Elliott's own band MFH, later known as Pump.

Many YHR releases were subsequently reissued by Auricle Music on cassette after the demise of the label. A number have also been reissued on LP or CD by an assortment of labels.
