Momus

Momus

Momus aka Nick Currie is a musician, writer, and blogger, originally from Paisley, Scotland. He now lives in Osaka. See his website for the eclectic nature of his work, which is as unique, interesting, and uncommercial as any really original artist could hope for. I see him as a latter day Ivor Cutler, who is one of my heroes.

I would never have come across his work if it hadn’t been for joining KILTR, a Scottish social media platform, where someone posted the video below. Momus is a faux tour guide in the exhibition, Darwin: Art and Search for Origins. Inspired stuff, makes me want to search out his music and writing.

For comparison, here’s Ivor Cutler looking for truth with a pin.
