The song 'Heartbeat Crazy' introduces original lyrics and vocals by Naughty Wood,
and four releases later on Nation 006, Sikk Truth came live with his lyrical content and vocal arrangement.
Both songs cultivate a presence which projects a raw, deep emotional state of being and consciousness.

A force to be reckoned with!
