Narrated by the renowned British Actor
Michael Jayston
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, films and TV such as Star Wars or Doctor Who  and like edge and depth to your music from an artist whose roots are in the D.I.Y Punk scene, then this album will bring pleasure to your ears and soul. An extraordinary born of its time.
Let the journey begin…

“First caught my attention visually, what a great package to celebrate the return of vinyl – it had to come up with goods though, and Ruben doesnt disappoint.. dark narrated adventures, eclectic mix of styles, plently of original wierdness.. this is concept album for the disfunctional 21st century.. great stuff, loved following the album and the comic (fantastic artwork)” Martyn Frongle
Wow great to get an album that seems so much more than just an album. This feels epic in every way. Superb story telling weaves and knits great songs and lyrics in an extrodinary way. Compelling journey of music, narration and imagery combine to deliver an incredible album. Original and stylish. It’s not often albums these days drift and absorb you into another dimension. This really is a fantastic package. Glad I got the comic too as the artwork is outstanding. All reminds me of how great albums used to be! SuperFantastic.”  GetGlobilized
