The debut solo outing from Bugs. Mixed by acclaimed maestro Ott, (Blumenkraft, Halucinogen in Dub, James, Killing Joke, Embrace).
"Has a dark and brooding urban feel personified by vocalist Bugs' moody performance. It's an 80's approach perhaps, but very well handled." Sound on Sound 2001
"There's a definite air of the mystical at the heart of this most evocative piece of music. The chorus itself is a huge pulsating slab of rock, reminiscent of such mega bands as Killing Joke, The Stranglers and The Cult. The production is very strong, if tipping a rather large nod to the 80's. The guitar sounds are fantastic, cutting through the rhythm and keyboards like a scalpel. crisp, clean acoustics add another dimension and an air of the spiritual is poured over the whole mix with the arabesque solo lines.
The kind of ethereal vibe that you just don't get from the majority of todays pop artists!" Total Guitar 2002
"Something a bit different here: The song kicks straight off with a crescendo of multi-layered, carefully panned and chorused guitars which serve to move the song between chorus and verse, almost exploding from the speakers in places. The mix is very slick and we're impressed with the way Bugs has managed the guitars maintaining definition between the individual parts. Good work." Computer Music 2002
"Arabesque guitars, doom-laden synths and stabbing strings lend a doomy grandeur. The 80's trappings are no bad thing, the Gary Numan style synths in 'Breed' add to its hook-laden dynamism, and the poppy 'We Fly' recalls Fried-era Julian Cope. It's all impressively polished." Musician 2002
Rock and Roll
This ep rocks. If you like your music simmering with deep and emotional vocals, topped with some infectious 80's guitar laden grooves, then this is for you. My personal fave is Odelee, with its haunting bass and vocals, this music sticks in your head for the right reason, unlike the factory produced pop out there.
