Serve time with electro comedy duo Eccentronic, imprisoned for musical crimes they (probably) didn't commit: mashing up incompatible music (like Kraftwerk, Pulp, Nine Inch Nails and Girls Aloud), audacious middle-class rap, and unleashing dangerously addictive minor internet hits about the Croydon tram, Solihull and existential angst.
