"Sharkey is at the cutting-edge of contemporary improv-fusion guitar technique, colliding headlong free-jazz phrasing with roaring thrash metal riffs and ghostly electronics" (The Guardian)

"Astonishing technique that produces a vast array of otherworldly sounds from his battered looking Fender Strat, creating a torrent of angular flurries, gut-wrenchingly heavy, chugging, riffs and spaced out looping. He's one of the most exciting young guitarists on the UK scene, and one that might just find fans in both free jazz and avant metal camps." (Jazzwise Magazine)

"Never has 4-to-the-floor had such a wide groove to it - this cut is heavy in a simultaneously organic and computerised way. A mash of progressive jazz/rock/techno mastery guaranteed to scare the crap out of you." (Cellars and lofts)

"A lo-fi vision of mangled techno, where beats cluster and stumble in their fight for dominance; a highly intriguing piece of noise art." (Data Transmission)
