The record features special guests including U2s Larry Mullen Jr. who plays on nine of the twelve tracks as well as a highly anticipated mini-reunion of the original Alice Cooper band members!

Hold onto your underwear folks, as a magic of a different kind arrive from Down Under! Move over, Thunder boys, this Aussie duo prove that you need neither pockets or pants to perform the best slight of hand tricks and illusions. Maybe it's a distraction technique to get away with the cheekiest magics, but devilish duo Chris Wayne and Mike Tyler aren't going to tell you! Between them, they are athletes, hypnotists and even former childrens' TV stars (all magic performed with clothing!), comedians and extremely good with their hands, no puns intended. This R-rated magic show takes away the stereotypical top hats and jackets, with full-frontal illusions, erm, on show!
