Volume 1: Crop Circles

by Sheer Velocity

All-instrumental, guitar-centric extravaganza that veers unsettlingly between exotic beauty and nightmare soundscapes. Daredevil fretboard virtuosity is offset by unpredictable, bizarre and often linear arrangements and a whole world of textures & moods.
Genre: Rock: Instrumental Rock

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When Andee Blacksugar is not busy helming his "highly destructive dance-rock" outfit Black Sugar Transmission, touring the world with Acey Slade and the Dark Party or tending to his hair, he records stacks and stacks of stream-of-consciousness instrumentals like those featured on this, his first official instrumental release.

The purpose is to explore concepts on the guitar and stretch the limits of his instrumental abilities, but Sheer Velocity is also a creative palette-cleansing, which drains off the more bizarre and indulgent musical notions that rattle around in this songwriter's head.

Each piece is conceived, written, recorded and mixed in one sitting. During particularly prolific periods, as many as two or three of these are finished in a day's time. An avid pop music fanatic who writes catchy electro-rock songs by day, Andee uses these sessions to exorcise the darker, more warped and decidedly anti-pop tendencies of his musical persona. Oh, and to shred gratuitously on his Stratocaster. He played and programmed all of the parts you hear, and records exclusively in his Brooklyn apartment under the influence of copious amounts of hubris.

Generally bored by most instrumental guitar music, Andee is nonetheless quite taken by the work of Jeff Beck and Marty Friedman, among a few others.

Andee has collaborated with artists as diverse as Vernon Reid (Living Colour), Dug Pinnick and Jerry Gaskill (King's X), Boy George and Scissor Sisters. And he loves talking about himself in the third person.
