alwbsok I know Parker primarily from Nosferatu D2 (their one album is fantastic too). He's let his age catch up with him, and shares his angst and depression with us. The last track makes me cry, every time. Favorite track: The Angriest Dog in the World.

Audio Antihero: Specialists in Commercial Suicide formed in late 2009 as a means of releasing the lost debut album from the long disbanded Nosferatu D2 ( and although the brotherly duo of Ben and Adam Parker never reformed, the LP would find a modest but dedicated audience (including members of Los Campesinos! and Art Brut) and rave reviews from Drowned In Sound, The Line Of Best Fit, The 405, The Digital Fix and This Is Fake DIY. The album's unconventional release would even become a featured story years later on BBC 6 Music (2011) and PRI's "The World' (2012).

Post-Nosferatu D2, Ben Parker began working solo under the name Superman Revenge Squad and issued several self-releases, showcasing his rapid-fire wit, lo-fi delivery and a unique morbidity through the mundane, scoring acclaim from indie press, the BBC and the chance to open for Jeffrey Lewis twice in one day. Though loose, raw and conversational, Parker always veered away from the obnoxious "OI! Acoustic" sound of some of his British Anti-Folk peers, offering something more substantial and deeply emotive, to our ears at least.

Now in 2013, Parker has assembled The Superman Revenge Squad Band for the recording of the album "There Is Nothing More Frightening Than The Passing Of Time" which reunites him not only with Audio Antihero but also with Nosferatu D2 drummer Adam Parker. Parker is backed this time with the unlikely 'Big Band' sounds of saxophone, accordion, cello, piano, frantic drums and his own minimal guitar playing.

Lyrically as strong and relatable as ever, Parker admits the frustrations of an Indie artist realising that success isn't going to come ("I'm so indie I could die, I like to underachieve and call it DIY but still listen to the radio and still wonder why they don't wanna play me") but admits that it might just be okay all the same ("I'm probably never gonna be on desert island discs but that doesn't necessarily mean that all of this was a waste of time"), en-route to recalling fragments of sequels ('Paulie In Rocky Three'), ITV's World Of Sport wrestling ('Kendo Nagasaki'), outdated social networks ("I was in your Top 8 friends on Myspace for half-a-week, by Tuesday night I'd disappeared but you made me feel special for a while...;I guess everything leads to loneliness.") and inspired by a David Lynch comic-strip, Parker re-imagines himself as a mistreated pet (or lover) on 'The Angriest Dog In The World' ("...;but I don't think I could do the things you did to me to you.") but perhaps more than anything, this album offers a realisation that in the end all there is "just a box of old records and a box of old books...and us."

“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

"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

"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.” - Clicky Clicky

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

"The Superman Revenge Squad Band (TSRSB?) are set to make a bold statement and a lot of friends - 9/10." - Shout4Music

"The Superman Revenge Squad band are a super group of mass proportions. The band showcase the plethora of musical talent with guitars, drums, saxophone, accordion, piano and cello to create a brilliant sound. Their sound reminded me of Belle and Sebastien which in my eyes is great." - 7BitArcade

"New single 'A Funny Thing You Said' is driven by a surprisingly harmonious accordion as their sound expands to take in a full band, and benefit massively from the added colours from the multitude of instruments. This witty little ditty bodes well for the upcoming album next month." - The Digital Fix

"Clever and intense with beautiful, observational, nostalgic, abstract and often stream-of-conscious lyrical narratives." - Fame Magazine
