Matthew Herbert revives Wishmountain with supermarket album

Releases

Matthew Herbert

Techno producer Matthew Herbert has announced the revival of his long defunct Wishmountain project, with a brand new Tesco-themed LP. Entitled ‘Tesco’ (obviously), the album features eight tracks created entirely from samples of sounds made by the top ten best selling items in Tesco (according to a 2010 survey in The Grocer).

Explains Herbert: “After all the questioning, controversy, head scratching, mud, straw and blood of the ‘One Pig’ record [which saw Herbert create an album using samples of a pig across the course of its life], I felt like making some old-fashioned dance music. I ended up making this record in four days, a spontaneous crunch around the modern supermarket – a place of fantasy, trickery, wonder and horror”.

The album will be released by Accidental Records on 16 Aug. Here’s the tracklist (which doubles up as the list of the most popular items sold by Tesco):

Lucozade
Nescafe
Kingsmill, Hovis And Warburton
Fruit Shoot
Dairy Milk
Walkers
Andrex
Coke
