Various Artists You Are Here
- Words: Dave Stenton
- Label: Accidental
Accidents do happen, but Matthew Herbert's mishaps pretty much always come out good. 2003 was, arguably, his best year yet-the Big Band project exceeded even his expectations, he married singer Dani Siciliano, and he found time to compile You Are Here. All that the 16 artists featured here have in common is that they're labelmates, and they show a willful disregard for the "rules" of musicmaking-which is probably what endeared them to Herbert in the first place. 8 Doogymoto, John Matthias, Soft Pink Truth, Dr. Rockit, Phil Parnell, Max De Wardener, and the aforementioned Big Band show us where it's at.
