Featuring guest contributions from Andy Burgess (Praying Mantis), actor Mark Benton (Northern Lights, Waterloo Road, Scoop, Dr. Who, etc.), Mike Freeland (More, ex-Praying Mantis) and Antoine Sazio (The New Year Project), it takes listeners on a trek through three millennia of history, juxtaposes classic comic book stories with a failing relationship, looks at the events and people who influence us consciously or otherwise, searches for the perfect woman, and takes minor detours via 80s hair rock and gin.
An album to be released in five parts, Still Sitting in Danny’s Car recounts a narrative that touches upon issues of friendship, nostalgia, loss, lust, lessons we might learn from ancient history, alcoholism, and the dilemmas that come with great power. It is both a quirky study of grief and a celebration of what it means to be alive. With Parts 1 & 2 already available, SSIDC 3: Rubicon continues this journey of everyday rockers, pubs, time travel and a job swap with Death.
