Lee Adcock Oooh, Ben Parker is back. New, more diverse sonic territory, but same essential urgency. Very promising.

Jamie (Audio Antihero) Free single from the upcoming Superman Revenge Squad Band album. Fans of Nosferatu D2 may enjoy it - but it's a very different beast. Absolutely wonderful and more to come.

Enzo Paolo Baranelli It's a pre-purchase: I think indipendent artists (at least the good ones :)) should be supported. IMHO. Please just hear the single and buy this CD! A great CD (update): I listen it in my car for over three hours (traffic jam). I really enjoyed this music.

Hello, friends. This here is a big deal. Here is the free leading single from Ben Parker's Superman Revenge Squad Band's upcoming album "There Is Nothing More Frightening Than The Passing Of Time" - limited to 140 copies and as inexpensive as we could possibly make it.

It's a genuine thrill to re-welcome Ben and Adam Parker to the Audio Antihero fold, having started this label pretty much exclusively as a vehicle to get the 'lost' Nosferatu D2 album (AAH001 - released and celebrated, it feels RIGHT to mark AAH010 with the recorded return of these two and a bunch of their friends.

If you've followed the work of Superman Revenge Squad then you'll know the joys of his minimal instrumentation and his inimitable wit and vocal presence...but this Big Band expansion is likely very new to you indeed. Packed full of guitar, drums, saxophone, accordion, piano and cello, these recording sessions (recorded in Croydon, of course) provide a wonderfully vast and varied canvas for Parker's beautiful, observational, nostalgic, abstract and often stream-of-conscious lyrical narratives. You'll enjoy it.

I am very pleased and proud to be able to call a Superman Revenge Squad release one my own and come the release date, I think you'll be able to see why too.

Previous Press:

"There couldn't be a better time to fall in love with Superman Revenge Squad...So, grab your kryptonite and let the squad into your heart and record collections." - The Line Of Best Fit

"Absolute genius." - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

"Great, and slightly unsettling..." - Joyzine

"Though he may not be, by any means, a household name Ben Parker is a man whose output is regularly met with cries of adulatory terms like 'genius' and 'lyrical ninja'." - Sonic Reverie

"On this rainy Saturday we are going to tell you to just hang it up altogether. Superman Revenge Squad's Ben Parker is a better songwriter than you and just about anyone, so there's little point in soldiering on with dreams of recording for a mid-sized indie. It is with surprising frequency that Mr. Parker lands a lyric that is excoriatingly personal and pointedly universal in its impact." - Clicky Clicky

"The man's a lyrical genius, and you'll all recognise this one day." - Sweeping The Nation

"Amazing...everything (he) touches turns to gold." - The Digital Fix
