Trexx and Flipside have had enough. No gigs, no record deal, no sign of a rocketing career. They need a top producer and they need him now and there's only one man up to the job - DJ Resplendent. If their manager, Brilliance, doesn't get him to agree to produce the boys' next track, he's history.

If Resplendent is who the boys want, that's who Brilliance will get - even if he has become a recluse. Resplendent famously went mad and ate all of the copies of his last record before becoming convinced he was Mick Hucknall.

Sent on a mission to track him down, Ollie finally discovers him on a roundabout outside Leicester. The boys need to impress him and Ollie needs to help him regain his sanity.

Rehearsing to impress, Trexx and Flip have the only copy of Resplendent's last record and know nothing of his madness-inducing history with the track. It doesn't take them long to find out, though...
