Momus: a singer, writer, artist and occasional tour guide from Edinburgh, currently living in Osaka. In the 1980s he was signed to independent labels like 4AD, Creation and Cherry Red. Since then he’s diversified into performance art and fiction, while continuing to make playful and erudite electronic folk records. His latest LP, Scobberlotchers, is a ‘post-breakup album’ inspired by Brexit. Live, he enacts the songs rather than just singing them, to the accompaniment of video visuals and ungainly dancing.
Opening the evening is Matthew Edwards of Matthew Edwards and the Unfortunates. Urbane art-pop based in Birmingham UK and San Francisco CA. New album released on Gare Du Nord on May 26th 2016.
