Maxicron! Amazing Gracie! Fenderbender! These and many other famous heroes stick in the collective craw of the world''s mad scientists, who, frustrated with their numerous individual defeats, have united under the diabolical leadership of Dr. Thaddeus Mallevo and Sir Wilfred P. Huffelbaggins III to get rid of the heroes forever with the terrible robot army known as The Sinister Sixty, led by the Kill-O-Tron! Now, only one hero wannabe -- the idealistic everyman who calls himself The Waffle -- stands between the people of Earth and total subjugation!
Pity he''s just been zapped across the galaxy....
Inspired by 24 Hour Comics Day and a whole bunch of suggestions on his LiveJournal, Tom Smith''s newest album was written in one day. (Okay, he fudged a bit -- some of the shtick, and an extra verse here and there, were written later.) With a plot, no less. Action, comedy, drama, romance, sound effects, alien hotties, ludicrous exposition, angst-filled killer robots, pirate ninjas with dinosaurs, dimensional gateways, croquet tournaments, and a gorgeous cover by Diana Harlan Stein -- this one''s got it all!
Also included on the CD are bonus tracks on the creation of album, alternate takes, bloopers, and the horror of Tom trying to sing like a girl!
