****The Sound Projector review 'Neon Fractured Night'
The Truth About Frank are a combo from Leeds, creating underground soundtrack and experimental music in an electronic vein; Neon Fractured Night (WEIRD AND WIRED 027) is six tracks of fractured and emblackened semi-industrial grindery, laced with many relentless loop-rhythms, horror-show percussive attacks, and generally sickening synth tones. Very impressive stuff executed with economy and precision, and all the music here conveys strong sensations of oppression, isolation, and constricted movement. Each episode appears to be nocturnal, lit only by flickering street lights, depicting depressing psycho-dramas which are invariably enacted with a smoky factory in background, while all the participants draw polluted sooty air deep into their lungs. This whole set is available as a free download...http://www.weirdandwired.net/neon_fractured_night.htm
****Vibrations review of 'Neon Fractured Night'.............
Could it be possible that The Truth About Frank is a new Kraftwerk, or a new take on Looper. In a word, no. This is new, fresh and very original. For all you minimal house and techno fans, this is one to watch out for.
This six track EP would work well at a gathering in a alternative room, and would have people from all walks of life congregating and stomping to the untamed rawness. The second track 'When The Lights Wear Out' is definitely of of the best on this EP with its fuller more robust sound. For myself, however, the runaway top tune is the final and epic eleven minute long track 'The Grey Legend'. If you love to get wired on your music, you will enjoy this religiously.
