On the planet Blipp, beyond the stars, beyond the sun and moon, The world is ruled by music - but tradition called the tune. So begins the cosmic musical tale of Sprocc, a young Splingtwanger-player who leaves his home planet, Blipp, in search of musical freedom. Lured by the promise of fame and fortune, Sprocc enters the annual Worst Band in the Universe Competition and is launched skywards on an adventure of truly intergalactic proportions.
