Unearthing is an audio and visual project uniting legendary comic book writer Alan Moore, award-winning photographer Mitch Jenkins, and a cast of high calibre musicians. This unique creation consists of an epic, bewitching story written and narrated by Moore set against a mesmerizing score from Crook&Flail, Stuart Braithwaite, Zach Hill, Justin Broadrick, Mike Patton and others.
Alan Moore is best known for his groundbreaking graphic novels, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, From Hell, V For Vendetta, and The Watchmen. These, along with work for 2000 AD and DC Comics, have established Moore as one of the most influential and important writers in the history of comics. His output has sold millions, lead to numerous awards and been adapted for feature films- Moore has even made a cameo appearance on The Simpsons.
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, whilist Drucker's adventures under his Doseone solo guise- and with cLOUDEAD, Themselves and Subtle. Together the pair have listed an impressive array of talented collaborators, including Strart Braithwhite of post rockers Mogwai, drummer Zach Hill from acclaimed experimental band Hella, the trailblazing and prolific Justin Broadrick of Napalm Death, Godflesh and Jesu and alternative rock hero and Faith No More/Mr. Bungle/Tomahawk/Fantomas frontman, Mike Patton.
