Pre-Save "Space And Other Things" - An Epic Protest Album For The People.


With his newly-released track, “Newspaper Man”, Scot Sier has introduced the 1st single from his ambitious, socially-conscious new concept LP, “Space and Other Things”. The album is a plea for global change, and “Newspaper Man” aligns nicely with this mission, both thematically and lyrically. The song was inspired by a real person and actual events. Sier had met a lifetime-loyal, yet elderly man selling papers on a city corner who lost his job to a ruthless, capital-maximizing company that sold the paper and no longer needed his service.


“The papers cutting corners They say you have to go

Union men aren’t wanted They say your getting old Working rain or sunshine Keeping people informed”


Writing the song, Sier quickly found it morphing into a protest song, a pro-union salvo for the unsung heroes who are being worked to the bone by corporations that care only about the bottom line. A driving, intense straight-up rock n’ roll track, “Newspaper Man’s” fiery opening bass track kicks things off with a bang, performed by bassist Chris Chaney, who previously played bass in the HNC band with Foo Fighters’ recently-deceased Taylor Hawkins and Dave Navarro on guitar), accompanied by a driving rhythm section featuring Sier on guitar, Luke Adams on drums and Max Hart on keys.


“Space and Other Things” is a dizzying and impactful album that features a super-group lineup of Los Angeles and world musicians. From billionaires colonizing Mars to the extinction of the human race, the eight prescient songs target a specific cultural or political topic, telling their story with futurist genre-bending experimentations and musicianship. “Newspaper Man” is the first single, one of many to be released in the build-up to the album release early 2023.
