Wendy Gondeln (Albert Oehlen) – Fracking LP



“magazine 10 wendy gondeln fracking wendy gondeln is here to introduce and spread the dance style called fracking. gondeln, also known as the german painter albert oehlen and longtime red crayola member, recently laid out the aspects of fracking in his studio in düsseldorf. realising that one thing was missing, he asked wolfgang voigt to provide him with two plain gabber bass drum canvases. wendy, a great connaisseur of this ancient form of techno, considered the offerings from the unheralded prince of the german bass drum so precious that he drove to cologne to pick them up personally. he managed to take the delights home safely, painted over them with his bow as if it was a brush and thus completed his vision of fracking. wolfgang on the other hand, couldn’t stop fracking after wendy’s visit, which resulted not only in his frst fracking track, but in his first three. included here in the form of a fracking triptych. when magazine (jens-uwe beyer, crato, barnt) heard of this new thing called fracking, they had to start fracking too. of course. not long before this text was written, these frackings were brought back to düsseldorf and tested towards the end of a frenzied set at the salon des amateurs. and guess what people started as soon as the bow hit the violin… right: fracking!” (label info)
