Expect earfuls of Ritalin-gobbling shards of rock in the form of two CDs — Candy Clown for Prez 2048 and Get On Top of Me You Big Baby — and a DVD compilation called Brainmania with footage from 30 live shows and home video projects. "Everything we've done since we existed," says O'Neil. "And a lot of other stuff besides." Is that even possible?
