NEW DOUBLE ALBUM for 2024 ...the new albums are all recorded and mixed and mastered ...
KOCHTOPUS'S GARDEN—NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL CAPITALISM—THE MUSICAL exploring Dark Money Anon's capture of the US political system, it's idiot plan to rule a burning planet, and people fighting back. The albums feature an expanded roster of musicians from both sides of the Atlantic ...
The albums will be released worldwide on May Day 05.01.24. on all the usual digital platforms and a double CD will be available.
The albums are "a thespian punk rock extravaganza.” ... Danbert Nobacon and Kira Wood Cramer take leading roles in this verbal burlesque hybrid, and are joined by an ensemble of new and returning Axis of Dissent musicians, and a full cast of no less than twenty three characters ... classifies as a double album because, like a good stage play or film it clocks in at the 84 minute mark
Based on the novel “Brain Circus” by Danbert Nobacon, which, for reasons relating to, protecting intellectual property from prying corporate algorithms, only currently exists inside the authors head.
An epic odyssey into the absurdity and frustrations of modern life that bounces along with a deceptively festive tone, all while painting a highly detailed portrait of the American dream turned into a nightmare … zany (in its) cinematic glory … catchy as hell …
—The Comet - Radarstation
Always with a mischievous smirk … details the horrors of late period capitalism … This is the album that hardcore Chumbawamba fans have wanted for years.
“Mesmerica should strike a chord with anyone who's tired with the ridiculousness of the status quo … Nobacon knows what's up, and Mesmerica breaks it down with humor and grace.”
—Jon Wright Radio Airplay

The fully regracked, re-vocalized, re-mixed and reimagined 2018 version of the Woebegone (2010) album. The new album version features Kuinka's Miranda Zickler and The Bad Things:
Don’t tell me you read books, Come read my thought crimes
Mmm! Mmm! Mmm! Come smell what’s on my mind
Half a dozen of imagination, six of reality
Once bitten, twice smitten, rolling off the edge of the map.

Exploring the consilience between art and science, and in opposition to Trump's war on art and science and in defense of common humanity and the planet.
As random as the atoms cast,
From the belly of an exploding star
Comingling into a solar system
With a goldilocks planet just like ours
