Duke Garwood poster
My 2013 drawing ‘Hunger’, mocked-up for a Duke Garwood concert poster. In a world where you can know a little bit about everything (without really knowing anything) it’s refreshing to find something relatively new and undiscovered. Duke Garwood has been making music for years, but it’s only in recent times that his name has gained prominence. Often referred to alongside the likes of Nick Cave and Mark Lanegan (with whom he’s collaborated), Garwood’s music is, for me, a meld of legendary desert rockers Kyuss at their most languid and a peak-era Leonard Cohen high on peyote. His new album Garden Of Ashes can be regarded as a narrative about chance and death, a dark sonic brother to Cormac McCarthy’s No Country For Old Men.
