Down with OPP*: In Case We Die Audiobook
Written by janice headley | Filed under Fantagraphics BookstoreeventsDown with OPPDanny Bland 10 Oct 2013 12:11 PM


* Other People's Publications, er... "Production"!
** Yeah, You Know Me.

It's not enough that Danny Bland's debut novel is amazing, no.  Local 638 Records had to go and release an audio version of this semi-autobiographical wicked tale that takes "amazing" to a whole 'nother level!!!

Just take a look at this stellar roster of readers: Duff McKagan (Guns & Roses), Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age), Steve Earle, Aimee Mann, Mark Arm (Mudhoney), Marc Maron (WTF With Marc Maron)... and that's just to name a few! See the complete star-studded line-up and sample some passages at their Bandcamp page. Together, the audio book is over seven hours long! Hello, road trip accompaniment!

Plus, each incredible artist, actor, and musician who recorded a chapter DONATED their time and talents.  If that's not a testament to the powerful prose of Bland, I don't know what is.

Believe it or not, it gets even better:  a portion of all audiobook proceeds will go to MusiCares, a non-profit arm of the Grammy Foundation providing medical care and sobriety resources for musicians. (Once you read the book, you'll understand why!)

If somehow I still haven't convinced you, then stop by Elliott Bay Bookstore in Seattle on Saturday, October 12th to witness a riveting reading by Bland himself at 7:00 PM! Then come get your CD at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, located at 1201 S. Vale Street in Seattle's Georgetown district. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone: (206) 658-0110. (Don't live in Seattle? Click on over to Local 638 Records for all your purchasing needs!)

** Yeah, You Know Me.
