Books on tape need soundtracks. If more audiobooks had featured marvelous, moving scores, then Kindles would never have started outselling walkmans. Brian Miller (Foot Village, Back to the Future The Ride) gets my drift. His latest solo project, True Neutral, finds Miller in more song-y territory and scoring a new audiobook to be released via his own Deathbomb Arc Records. The audiobook is for the latest novel by absurdist writer Patrick Wensink, entitled Broken Piano for President, which is out now from bizarro publisher Lazy Fascist Press. The story involves a “noise band that gets caught up in a conspiracy involving fast food moguls, international space programs, and, of course, their music.”
Miller’s soundtrack is accompanied with contributions from Brian Chippendale (Lightning Bolt/Black Pus) on drums, Ezra Buchla (ex-Gowns/EMA contributor) on viola, and Christina Gubala on voice.
