Notes:

Welcome to the steely feel! This album was recorded at Blue Flux's interim Piglet Studio in Cologne. Not quite an 'unplugged' album on account of a few electric pickups alongside the microphones, it nonetheless only features guitars, bass, and the odd percussive instrument.
 
But Sugarbeat is far from being a solo instrument effort. Most compositions are multi-layered, with a truly organic guitar feel, subtle ambiences, foot-stomping drive and plenty of grit. All songs are originals with the exception of Valley of the Bells, Blue Flux's guitar arrangement of Maurice Ravel's masterpiece, and the traditional Scarborough Fair, which brings the album to a gentle close.
