Details

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.

"Our anti-hero is floating in a tiny lifeboat made of heroin, graveyard shifts & rock music. His companions are two fabulous women; a bombshell who robs banks & a beautifully pale rock violinist who can barely dodge suicide. ICWD is much funnier & more satisfying than any other junkie rock'n'roll tragedy." – John Doe (X)

"Bland is a brutally funny and bravely honest writer. A perfect guide through the bloodshot streets and desperate bedrooms of the underground wilderness." – Dave Alvin (Blasters)

"In Case We Die is a poetic and elegant journey ... straight to the gutter." – Wayne Kramer (MC5)

"Beautiful, literary redemption." – Exene Cervenka (X)

"A great piece of work — full of filth and heart." - Steve Earle

"A suitably Peckinpah finale. Bravo. It has been like a traveling dream state and sometimes familiar look into the abyss." – Greg Dulli (Afghan Whigs)

"I am a believer in what Bland has to say. He writes with eloquence, candor, darkness, and humor....the good stuff!" – Duff McKagan (Guns 'N' Roses)

"Danny Bland is one of the most interesting people I've ever known. Beneath a crusty, punk rock exterior lies one of the biggest hearts I've ever seen. This book? It's the literary version of Danny Bland." – Damien Echols (West Memphis Three)
