The Superman Revenge Squad Band - A Funny Thing You Said

Longtime readers, if there are any left, will recall our coming over all unnecessary a few years ago about the lyrical greatness of Ben Parker through his two self-distributed albums and one EP as Superman Revenge Squad, a stream of consciousness set of abstractive self-lacerating observations and broadcasts from the slough of despond. After a few years away from that name ploughing a couple of other furrows he's formed a band, which while wrecking the minimal directness of those records does bring quite the colour palette with sax, cello and accordion worked in. Notably the band also includes Adam, Ben's brother and oppo in the still magnificent Nosferatu D2, and that almost relentless dynamism is as much the key as Ben's thoughts on the passage of time. The soon-come album There Is Nothing More Frightening Than The Passing Of Time is out 16th September in limited numbers and preorderable from the mighty Audio Antihero.
