(May 2003) 12 tracks (59 mins)

Ex-Capercaillie bass player John Saich with Jacqui Kerr (vocals), Mags Russell and - from Travis - Neil Primrose (drums).

Mixing contemporary soundscapes with retro guitar and a Celtic spirit. Wildlife, dog sounds, and snatches of conversation slide in amongst the lyrics and electronic programming - Scottish by birth, but not in musical nature, this album would repay intense listening.

"The material is alive and bustles with the interplay of different ideas, influences, and stylistic flourishes, among them the occasional salvo of bagpipes and a traditional Gaelic chorus. It also includes plenty of rock guitar licks, splashes of brass, evocative samples, retro keyboard and happy house romps." (Sue Wilson)
