Working in impressionist pop and electronica as Fog, indie rock as one half of Hymie’s Basement, scoring and soundtracking with Dose One as Crook&Flail and his latest foray into brutalist grime and electronics as Wertheimer, Andrew Broder has covered much musical ground in his long career…
Wertheimer is here, Andrew Broder is now.
Expanding from his deeply layered and brutalist debut EP under the alias Wertheimer, Andrew Broder, a.k.a. Fog, steps out in his own name, flipping the word ‘Wertheimer’ into the title of this new EP of mangled and mischievous electronic music.

FOG began life as Andy Broder’s solo, homegrown, lo-fi musical experiments and expanded into a three-man band, blasting out full-on rock tracks but still staying true to their foundations.

“This is Fog in its purest form: minimal, haunting and darkly impressionistic.” Pitchfork.
Together with Dose One, Crook&Flail 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, to score and soundtrack seminal graphic novelist Alan Moore’s biographical project Unearthing.
Alan Moore once again enlisted the duo to provide the score for his latest visual work with director Mitch Jenkins, Show Pieces.
