Punky Brüster involves Devin, Adrian White (drums for SYL on Heavy As...) and JR Harder (bass for Ocean Machine). It has a compelling storyline and plot mixed with extra helpings of humour, and is basically a complete punk pisstake.

The CD tells the story of how a cheesy death metal band, Cryptic Coroner, realised the weren't making any money and turned punk.

Their CD, "Cooked On Phonics", reached number 3 in the Japanese charts on release, and is currently available through HDR.
