Alan Moore + Mike Patton + Justin Broadrick = Edward’s Dream Come True!


Props to Rich Johnston of Bleeding Cool for bringing this to my attention:

It looks like Lex Record are planning to release Alan Moore’s long-rumoured ‘Unearthing’ project.

Unearthing is described as “an audio and visual project uniting legendary comic book writer Alan Moore, award-winning photographer Mitch Jenkins and a cast of high-calibre musicians.”

The musical score for Unearthing is produced by Crook&Flail, a partnership between Andrew Broder and Adam Drucker. Broder is the multi-instrumentalist behind the band Fog whilst Drucker’s adventures under his Doseone solo guise – and within cLOUDDEAD, Themselves and Subtle – have seen him explore spoken word and the outer reaches of rap. Together the pair have enlisted an impressive array of talented collaborators, including; Stuart Braithwaite of Scottish post-rockers Mogwai, drummer Zach Hill from acclaimed experimental band Hella, the trailblazing and prolific Justin Broadrick of Napalm Death, Godflesh and Jesu and pioneering alt-rock hero and Faith No More frontman Mike Patton.

Apart from being a huge Alan Moore fan, this is an essential purchase for me, because I love Mike Patton and Justin Broadrick, these me are like musical gods to me!

Here’s what you’ll get in the box set:

2 x. 180g vinyl LP audiobook with soundtrack
1 x. 180g vinyl - soundtrack instrumental
1 x. deluxe photo print portrait of Alan Moore by Mitch Jenkins
1 x. Dot-matrix printed transcript of Unearthing
1 x. Unearthing poster by Mitch Jenkins
CD1. audiobook with soundtrack
CD2. soundtrack instrumental
