Momus

Create 2 - Recreate: 3CD Remastered & Expanded Edition

    Cherry Red Records are very proud to be working together with Momus again, following on from the success of their 2016 collaboration, Pubic Intellectual – An Anthology 1986-2016. Named after the Greek god of mockery, Momus is prolific Scottish songwriter, author and journalist Nick Curry, who has now been releasing critically acclaimed music in a style all of his own for over thirty years. Following Cherry Red’s recent release of Momus’ first three Creation Records albums, the final three classic albums for Creation Records (Hippopotamomus - 1991, Voyager - 1992, Timelord – 1993) have now been compiled together in one very attractive package, combining this already genius material with a selection of fantastic bonus tracks selected by Momus himself. Hippopotamomus, Momus’s fourth Creation Records LP, was seen as the artist’s flat-out tribute to his idol Serge Gainsbourg, which courted controversy in a similar vein to his idol’s antics upon its release by landing the artist in hot water, both in the music press, and in the courtroom for its questionable content. Its follow-up, Voyager, is often seen as Momus’s first, and best, in his trilogy of albums addressing the near-future sci-fi androgeny of Japan. While Timelord remains Momus’ open love letter during his personal romantic turmoil of the early ‘90s.

    Momus

    Public Intellectual - An Anthology 1986-2016

      Scottish artist Momus – the performing alias for Nick Currie – has curated a fascinating body of work over the course of the last 30 years for labels such as Creation, Cherry Red, Analog Baroque and él. For thirty years, Momus has been releasing albums to critical success. In his lyrics and his other writing, he makes novel use of decontextualized pieces of continental (mostly French) philosophy, and has built up a personal world he says is "dominated by values like diversity, orientalism, and a respect for otherness." He seems fascinated by identity, Japan, Rome, the avant-garde, time travel and sex.

      Celebrating his 30th anniversary, Pubic Intellectual is the first Anthology to document Momus’ entire recorded output. Carefully compiled and annotated by the artist, with artwork by his chosen designer, this is a very personal statement. Included are many of Momus’ most acclaimed songs – such as ‘The Hairstyle Of The Devil’, ‘Lucky Like St. Sebastian’ and ‘Murderers, The Hope of Women’. Pubic Intellectual also draws on Momus’ most recent albums from the noughties, such as Bibliotek, Bambi, Turpsycore and Glyptothek.
