Long before the man with the fixed ‘fuck you’ stare, can of beer, e-cigarette and laptop found a home as one half of Sleaford Mods, Andrew Fearn was making music at home comprising samples, loops, frazzled electronic textures, deep bass rumbles, mutated beats, punk snarl, post-dancefloor meltdown mayhem and all manner of other abstract and disparate sounds. Rammed home by the same DIY sensibility that drives Sleaford Mods, Andrew’s (mostly) solo works are where he cuts his teeth on new ideas, fresh sounds and music that sways heavily between that of a chemical-soaked film soundtrack and an obvious passion for all things that filter in from those less obvious edges most people prefer to keep at bay.
Just Tracks collects the latest album of the same name alongside a bonus disc which delves into his back catalogue (otherwise to be found residing on Bandcamp and various other spots over the ‘net). It, perhaps as suggested, merely hints at the little sonic dust-storms Andrew kicks up at every available free moment he gets (presumably over rugged and much abused equipment stained by coffee and with overflowing ashtray nearby…).
