Lupen Crook

"Whereas folk music is traditionally seen as a means to give voice to the ideas of everyday people, Crook takes those common ideas and shines his own metaphorical black light upon them, exposing what are oftentimes unsettling notions about things which have long been taken for granted." -- Under the Radar Magazine
















British singer-songwriter Lupen Crook is 3 parts disturbing and 7 parts intriguing. He writes folk music that definitely takes a walk on the dark side; topics such as suicide, rape, and dead animals aren't really first choice topics for pop music nowadays. However, I like Lupen Crook's simplistic style which is highly noticable in "Urban Fox Hunting." There's lots of guitar with an organ rounding out the sound at the end.
