Premiere: Wishmountain – Tesco Matthew Herbert dusts off his dance-orientated project Wishmountain for an album entirely sampled from a Tesco shopping bag.
Fascinating musician Matthew Herbert often makes music from samples that he’s made from things he’s bought. Now, 16 years on from turning the sound of a smashed portable radio into a clubtrack, and after spending an album following one pig from slaughterhouse to bacon butty, he’s confronted your weekly supermarket shop.
Herbert said: “After all the questioning, controversy, head scratching, mud, straw and blood of the ONE PIG record, I felt like making some old-fashioned dance music. I ended up making this record in 4 days, a spontaneous crunch around the modern supermarket – a place of fantasy, trickery, wonder and horror.”
