Beak> Kosmik Musik

23rd September 2022

Format Info


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.

The soundtrack is pressed on 10″ black vinyl and housed in a spined sleeve. 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 2000ad, Metal Hurlant, Kirby tech, psychedelic 60s art, Doctor Who, Douglas Adams, Kraut Rock, Star Trek and Star Wars. A UK 70s English childhood basically. The project comes with a sonic accompaniment by Beak> who have live dates on the horizon including Primavera Sound in LA
