The first ever DVD to feature one the true enigmatic figures of alternative music's last twenty years, Momus. Throughout his recording career for Cherry Red Records and Creation Records, now stretching over twenty years, Momus has always excited and confounded in equal measure – his work always contains something different and challenging, and "Man Of Letters" is no exception. "Man Of Letters" was produced by Finnish director Hannu Puttonen (who has also worked with Billy Bragg and Bill Drummond), and has been described as "not so much a documentary, but a stream of consciousness, visualizations of songs, moral discussions by Momus and companions...of whom some have a high profile in British pop culture..." The guest appearances referred to in that description include Jarvis Cocker, Saint Etienne singer Sarah Cracknell, Ed Ball and Simon Turner. The "Man Of Letters" DVD contains the full length version of the programme, with nearly twenty minutes of unseen footage from the original video release. The DVD will also contain a short documentary on Momus that has only previously been seen on American Cable Television.
