SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND: Life can be a real pig at times @accidentallabel #SFTW

OK - not everything on the Accidental record label is animal influenced...  If you're planning a dinner party on Saturday you can happily use this weeks link, safe in the knowledge that your discerning soundtrack will fill any awkward silences with stimulating yet not overbearing musical abstracts including some pretty cool s**t.  Here is Accidental Records: http://open.spotify.com/search/label:Accidental

 

However following Soulwax, in the continued interests of high art Something For The Weekend simply has to feature the next Accidental release:

Matthew Herbert will release the much anticipated album One Pig on 10 October 2011. The album, made entirely from recordings of a modern pig’s life cycle from birth to plate, aims to listen in on a single farm animal’s life in the context of an otherwise-anonymous food chain.


Herbert will present a live version of the record at London’s Royal Opera House in early September, as part of Mike Figgis’s Just Tell The Truth festival. A full album launch will happen later in London in early October, to which you will of course be invited first. 


The project has already generated much media interest and some controversy. PETA rushed to condemn One Pig as making “entertainment” from animal cruelty, apparently without first checking key details about Herbert’s intention and methods, and there is a Facebook campaign attempting to prevent the release of the record.


One Pig is the final instalment of Matthew Herbert’s ‘One Trilogy’: three albums, each about one thing. (Though if you know much about Matthew, you know he’s already planning 10,001 new things…)

Spotify:  If you don't have it and it's available in your territory I suggest you get it.  It's free and will give you access to almost every commercially released recording there is (modest fee to get rid of the adds and enable offline play).

About

I set up Who'd of Thought It in 2010, as a blog and place to share and develop ideas. 

It evolved into a small community and forum to post thoughts and canvass feedback, with me entertaining the notion of perhaps collaborating on and publishing some of the content to a wider audience. After gathering some initial traction (there are some novel concepts in the archive) other ventures took precedence.

'WoTI' now serves as a occasional pleasure, scrapbook of ideas and guest posts from those who dare. But never say never!

Enjoy. Chris Thompson
