about

A jarring assemblage of exotic shred guitar absurdities, Writer's Block Party is an ice-cold faceful of pointy electronic beats, thrill-seeker scalar leaps, and frigid harmonic atmospheres, glimmering with the occasional jewel of melodic content.

As with all Sheer Velocity "songs", each of these was conceived and committed to hard drive space in one sitting, generally in the questionable hours 'twixt midnight and sun-up.

Writer's Block Party is the soundtrack to your alien dinner party; suggesting post-apocalyptic vistas, wholesale murder and sunbleached bones, it nevertheless causes involuntary head-banging and helpless daydreaming, as the inner-eyelid-pink and cobalt-blue dawn invariably sketches itself against the draining black ink of your night horizon...

REVIEWS of Volume 1: Crop Circles

"A precision-fingered assemblage of daredevil works...its exotic geometries will be impressed in the fertile fields of your musical mind" - FRACTAL AUDIO

"Like early Steve Vai with Rob Zombie producing. Really clever compositions and soundscapes...the best guitar album I've heard in years!" - ANDY WOOD, Down From Up

Andee has collaborated with artists as diverse as Peter Murphy (Bauhaus), 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.

Each piece is conceived, written, recorded and mixed in one sitting.
