Sugar Rush (album)

Sugar Rush is a 2011 studio album by The Humans. It is the second album by avant-garde rock singer Toyah Willcox and bassists Bill Rieflin and Chris Wong, a trio formed in 2007. The music is augmented in the studio with other instruments, notably the guitar of guest (and longtime Willcox associate) Robert Fripp of King Crimson, who appears on every track of Sugar Rush.[1] Igor Abuladze joined The Humans on their US and UK tour in 2011 in support of the album.[2]
