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to recalling fragments of sequels ('Paulie In Rocky Three'), ITV's World Of Sport wrestling ('Kendo Nagasaki'), outdated social networks ("I was in your Top 8 friends on Myspace for half-a-week, by Tuesday night I'd disappeared but you made me feel special for a while...;I guess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."
