Nick Currie, more popularly known under the artist name Momus (after the Greek god of mockery), is a Scottish songwriter who lives in Japan. He also writes fiction and reviews contemporary art.

A veteran of British indie labels, Momus is currently in the midst of a re-release program which will see all his early material reissued by Cherry Red. His latest LP of new compositions is Scobberlotchers — a response to Brexit and Trump — and his latest novel is Popppappp, the tale of two graphic designers captured by fanatical followers of Mark E. Smith.
