Take a show choir reject who was never cool enough for punk rock, throw him a rockabilly axe and have him cash in on all the poetry classes. Take an east coast jazz legend and tell him to lay off the diminished chording and step up the distortion. Take a comic-book drawing Level 5 Dungeoneer and give him +2 Charisma and +5 Vocalwork. Take a civil war reenacting drum geek and sit him down behind a proper kit. What do these nerds come up with? Sixteen tracks of total badassery. Theatricality without pretense. Virtuosic musicianship somehow stuffed into catchy rock anthems.
