Synopsis

Album Description
You Are Here is a collection of tracks released on Matthew Herbert's Accidental, Soundslike and Lifelike labels from their 3 year history, a visitors' guide to the bewildering world of Accidental Records. Initially the three labels were just a way of separating the myriad guises of Herbert. So, Accidental became home to Radio Boy, Lifelike the home of Doctor Rockit and Soundslike the home of Herbert. The label soon attracted a following and demos from friends, likeminded souls and others began to come in. From these came the first releases for the label that weren't produced by Matthew Herbert. The first of these was Phil Parnell's Barcelona EP; a lush 12' of deep, swampy electronic music. The title track of the EP is included here. The next artist was The Soft Pink Truth, a side project of Drew Daniel, one half of Californian experimentalists Matmos. Herbert dared Drew to make a house record and the results were so good that he asked him to make an album. Do You Party? was released in February 2003 on Lifelike. Other artists on You Are Here who have done albums for the label are singer songwriter John Matthias, 8 Doogymoto and Mugison. Max De Wardener also has an album in the works which is due to be released early 2004. Label completists will be pleased to see the inclusion of Shelby Gaines' Aquaworld which was released as a very limited 7' on the Low label (an ancestor of the Accidental family) There are also exclusive tracks from Ian Vine, International Space Station, Pete Stollery and NB. The artwork for the album is by Stanley Donwood, the designer responsible for Radiohead's sleeves.
