Just before Xmas we reviewed Matthew Herberts brilliant album Bodily Functions. Despite the fact that it’s the only album we’ve ever reviewed by Matthew Herbert on Louder Than War he’s actually been making some of the most cutting edge & brilliant electronic music for over a decade now. For news of his latest release (and to grab a free download from it) read on.

Matthew Herbert’s one of the more versatile electronic artists around. Using the moniker “Herbert” he releases music under the genre “house” and has been doing so through various outlets for some time know. “Herbert Complete”, you’ll probably not be surprised to learn, is a collection of all his releases as “Herbert” spanning the years 1996-2006. They’ve all been remastered by Mandy Parnell.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
