Guppy Tyke’s “public enema #2” is a collection of instrumental group jams and solo pieces produced by Sean Luciw (a.k.a. Lex Plexus) and featuring his all-over-the-map instrumental work. Sean blazes lead guitar in abundance throughout all tracks on the CD, having played for various bands in B.C. such as Sadistic Humor, Motherland, Cozy Gelpod, Structure, Crushing Complex and Cuyah.

About half of the tunes were spontaneously-combusted, improvised collaborations featuring the creative talents of Anthony Metivier, Evan Wilds of Earthbound, J.R. Adam, Ryan MacDuff, Jacob Bastien, Gary Faustman, Guy Poulin, Roxanne Hall, Dave McLean and Derf. The rest were put together by Sean in his mad-scientist lonesome.

The sonic palette of this album includes guitars, sitars, didjeridoos, harmonicas, flutes, trumpets, E-bows, fretless bass, bicycle spokes, bells, brass bowls, budbusters, saxophones, electronic loopage, chewing gum, hiccups, a few good laughs and even some dog-barks for good measure.
