Everyone's worried about fracking, the technique of fracturing subterranean rocks with high-pressure hydraulic blasts of toxic, non-biodegradable chemicals in order to loosen up the natural gas supplies contained within that's sweeping the nation. Will your water and air be contaminated with carcinogens to line some fatcat's pockets? Only time will tell, but if you're in the Manchester area prospects aren't looking that good.   Right here, however, we have a 'Fracking' I can get behind - this project is the brainchild of Wendy Gondeln, alias painter and Red Crayola member Albert Oehlen, who has enlisted the high-calibre help of Wolfgang Voigt and Magazine to lay down some cold minimal techno beats for him to hack along percussively with his violin in an unholy union of man and machine that stomps and grates with a gleeful relentlessness. It sounds like a difficult idea to get your head around but strangely it actually sounds quite intuitive and likeable I think, especially when they crank up the dial marked "party" on the disco-tinged closer full of dramatic synth stabs and twitchy morse beeps to temper the saw-like fiddle scraping that eventually descends into a creepy bunker-techno spook out. Much better than the other fracking.
