Local 638 Records and Fantagraphics Books are proud to announce the release of and book tour for the semi-autobiographical prose novel In Case We Die by debuting author Danny Bland, a 25-year veteran of the Seattle music scene.
Using his experience as an insider, Bland tells the visceral story of two outsiders who get lost in the darkest underground of '90s grunge rock.
Vulnerable to the high relief of heroin addiction, Bland's characters, Charlie Hyatt and Carrie Finch, are unapologetic protagonists whose epiphanies are as blinding as their weaknesses. Finch, 21, beautiful and dangerous, drowns out the voices in her head and the consequences of a misled life with guitars, booze and petulant misbehavior. Her single abiding faith takes the form of an unlikely savior - '60s psychedelic musician Roky Erickson (whom the author nods to with each chapter title). At the ripe old age of 28, Hyatt attempts to make sense of the cards he has been dealt: a miserable job in a porn shop, a drug habit he cannot afford and the wildly unstable woman he had chosen to love.
This audiobook CD version of the novel boasts an incredible cast of artists, actors, writers and comedians reading each chapter. The CD is 7 hours, 14 minutes and 47 seconds in length. Instead of a multiple disc set, we offer one MP3 CD that plays in most every car stereo.
All readers donated their time and talent to these one-of-a-kind recordings. A portion of all proceeds from the audiobook will benefit MusiCares, a non-profit arm of the Grammy Foundation dedicated to helping musicians and roadies gain sobriety and obtain medical care.
