Babyland was formed in 1989 by vocalist and programmer Dan Gatto and percussionist Michael Smith out of Los Angeles, California. They were advocates of the DIY punk ethic and part of the musical underground culture and well regarded in Industrial music, punk rock, indie rock and electronic music communities. In 1991, the band released their debut EP 1991 and later that year the single Reality Under Smrow-Toh on the Los Angeles Punk rock label Flipside.[1] In 1992 the song "Mindfuck" was provided to the If It Moves... compilation The Cyberflesh Conspiracy[2] and the following year the band produced a cover of Madonna's "Burning Up" for the Shut Up Kitty: A Cyber-Based Covers Compilation by Re-Constriction Records.[3]

Recordings prior to 1996 continued to be released by Flipside, including the band's first three albums: You Suck Crap (1992), A Total Letdown (1994) and Who's Sorry Now (1995).[4][5][6] These albums were positively received by critics, with Alternative Press crediting the band with embodying "all the confusion, resentment, anger, and frustration felt by an entire generation."[7] The band released their fourth studio album Outlive Your Enemies on Mattress Recordings in 1998.[8][9] The band also participated in several of Flipside's Mojave Desert events. Subsequent material has been released by the band's own label, Mattress.

The fifth full length The Finger and a compilation of earlier songs Decade One was released in Europe by dependent. Most recently, a deal with Metropolis Records has resulted in the wider commercial release of the sixth album Cavecraft.[10] A post to the band's Myspace site on October 9, 2009, confirmed the long-lived group's breakup. In 2013 the live album LIVE EXECUTION was released and documented a live performance made on January 1, 2009 at The Smell in Los Angeles.

The Teknophage, known on Kalighoul as Mr. Henry Phage, is the main antagonist of the Mr. Hero comic book series. Though he is portrayed as dinosaur, he is actually a bipedal 65 million year old serpent or snake demon since his powers are beyond powerful and demonic. He was created by Neil Gaiman for Tekno Comix and featured in Neil Gaiman's Teknophage and Neil Gaiman's Phage: Shadow Death and as a villain in Neil Gaiman's Mr Hero the Newmatic Man.

Neil Gaiman's Teknophage was written by Rick Veitch and drawn by Bryan Talbot for #1-6. Paul Jenkins took over from #7 with artist Al Davison until the series cancellation. The character then appeared in a six-issue limited series written by Bryan Talbot and penciled by Steve Pugh.

Henry Phage, sometimes called the Teknophage or Mr. Phage by those that worked for him is the ruler of many worlds, including his home world, Kalighoul. He has survived for 65 million years, feeding himself and practically making himself like a god. However, he is not immune to objects that are Off-World matter, as we have seen in the Teknophage and Phage: Shadow Death comics. He has created his own technology through use of alchemy and has made his world similar to a Victorian era steampunk world. He lives in a gigantic moving building, the Phage building. He has made allies and enemies from almost every planet and has his sights set on Kalighoul's sister world, Earth. Mr. Phage has the ambition of conquering the whole universe and turning it into his personal buffet.
