If you wanted an Alan Moore/Mike Patton team-up, it sounds like you can't have it.
Yesterday Billboard reported on a project by Lex Records tentatively called Unearthing that would team comics writer Alan Moore up with several musicians, including Faith No More's Mike Patton and Godflesh's Justin Broadrick.
Now Tom Brown, founder of Lex Records and the source for yesterday's story, is telling the Guardian that Patton and Broadrick aren't involved:
According to Lex founder Tom Brown, the confusion arose when he was asked by Billboard if anybody else was involved in the project. "I said no, but that Fog and Doseone had asked Justin Broadrick and Mike Patton if they were interested. I was very clear that they had not confirmed."
The other details on the project were correct -- it will include a photographic novel, art prints, a two-hour audiobook and a soundtrack that will include contributions by Andrew Broder of Fog. Patton, meanwhile, is doing some work with Lex Records, specifically a collaboration with TV On the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe.
