about

OFFICIAL RECORD STORE DAY 22nd April 2017 RELEASE

Featuring the renowned British Actor MICHAEL JAYSTON as the Narrator.

"Very different & tremendously unique...the concept album sounds too strange to be true but it absolutely works and it works really well...it’s raw and melodic at the same time and the narration from Jayston is sublime..one of my favourite albums for some time...punk, folk, jazz all wrapped up in a single package. I found the entire package simply brilliant" PUNKONLINE

punkonline.co.uk/ruben-vine-the-life-and-times-of-an-imaginary-rock-star-review/

The search for understanding about a man in relation to the modern world around him. Superficially this is a travelogue exploring the moral underbelly and direction mankind is taking in a difficult time in human history. A journey is undertaken to find ears for his music against a backdrop of contradictions, for the world he is part of is at once good and evil.

If you have ever enjoyed albums such as Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds or Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and like edge and depth to your music then this album will bring pleasure to your ears and soul. An extraordinary album born of its time. The journey lies ahead…

This 20 track album includes a 28 page comic that is an essential part of this album and the journey you will go on. There are physical copies available as:

• 500 Limited Edition 2LP with 28 page full colour comic
• 500 Limited Edition CD with 28 page full colour comic
