Beak> | KOSMIK MUSIK 10"
Black 10" vinyl
Two years in the making, ‘KOSMIK MUSIK’ is a collaboration between artist Joe Currie, writer Ben Wheatley and musical group Beak>, who worked closely with the artists to provide a musical accompaniment for the graphic novel.
Ben and Joe met at art school in the 90s where they both were involved in a lot of comic book drawing and reading. It’s taken thirty years to finally get their acts together and create this book. In the meantime, Joe has been sculpting and painting. Ben has been writing and directing films.
‘KOSMIK MUSIK’ is melting pot of 2000 AD, Metal Hurlant, Kirby tech, psychedelic 60s art, Doctor Who, Douglas Adams, Krautrock, Star Trek and Star Wars. A UK 70s English childhood, basically.
