Nick Currie (born 11 February 1960 in Paisley, Scotland), more popularly known under the artist name Momus (after the Greek god of mockery), is a prolific songwriter, blogger and former journalist for Wired. In his lyrics and his other writing he makes seemingly random use of decontextualised pieces of continental (mostly French) philosophy, and has built up a personal world he says is ‘dominated by values like diversity, orientalism, and a respect for otherness.’ He is fascinated by identity, Japan, Rome, the avant-garde, time travel and sex.
