Unearthing is a multimedia project – an epic yet personal story written by Alan Moore concerning his friend Steve Moore (no relation), their immersion in British Science Fiction, magic and his psychogeographical location at the heart of Shooters Hill in London. This is narrated over a musical score by Crook&Flail and guests, with images from award-winning photographer Mitch Jenkins.
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 alternative rock hero and Faith No More frontman Mike Patton.
“The men of Unearthing are only marginally of this plane of existence, and what they’ve created is positively out of this world.” Onion AV Club
“A tribute to a colleague and mentor and a demonstration that Moore has transcended the boundaries of the graphic novel” New York Times
