Exit, end, do no twerk. Extension double D, not work. Is this album called Untld for Untold or for Untitled? Andrew Fearn’s moniker raises more questions than feet with this scary and paranoid 10”. There’s only a few going around, so don’t miss out. Extended Network. Maybe that’s it.

Aside from having a fear of vowels, Andrew Fearn holds the secret to Sleaford Mods’ success - all of the necessary production and sampling dirt for Jason Williamson to bark over. His EXTNDDNTWRK project covers the period when he escapes the anger of his bandmate and doesn’t need to be super crunchy and grinding, instead focusing his energies on being murky and subversive. If SM are a thunderstorm, this is a cloudy day.
This 10” contains a string of micro-tracks that range from feverish, chopped proto-jungle (‘Remember Acid’) to thrumming electronic noise (‘Garments Of’). You still get a ‘Fuck Off’ from him though. It can loosely be divided between the two sides, the first being more formless and gloomy and the B signalling a sort of frantic paranoia that’s also pretty gloomy. The pace slows while Fearn fixes you an evil glare on side B somewhere (it’s impossible to know where the tracks end and begin on here - B2 or B3??). I’m trying to think of similar things but I can’t. You’ll have to come to terms with that. As for opinions, the other thing missing from this reviewer’s usual writings, this is pretty darn good.
