Marconi Union

Marconi Union

Marconi Union are Richard Talbot and James Crossley, a British musical duo with strong links to the Manchester based DOTCA arts collective.
They are notable for incorporating elements of electronica, ambient, jazz and dub into their music, and a tendency to make records that are conceptually-based. Frequent comparisons are drawn between Marconi Union and bands such as Talk Talk, Sigur Rós and Boards of Canada.
Previously they have made three highly acclaimed albums, Under Wires & Searchlights, released in 2003 on Ochre Records, Distance released in 2005 (2006 in the US) on All Saints Records and A Lost Connection released on their own label MU Transmissions as a download only.
Their fourth album Tokyo was released on CD and digital formats on 27th July on Binemusic and downloads are available via their own website www.marconiunion.com.
