Matthew Herbert's Bodily Functions gets sexy prom queen reissue treatment

2001 was a year when many things happened. Wikipedia was created! A clone baby of a weird-lookin’ endangered bovine called a gaur was born! Um, some other stuff happened! (Trying to keep it light, okay? It’s the holidays.) But surely one of the most important events of all of 2001 was the release of Matthew Herbert’s seminal Bodily Functions LP, the album that made house music shake the party dust out of its eyes and start thinking about the future.

Now Herbert’s label, Accidental Records, is giving Bodily Functions a whole new snazzy look, swapping its glasses and bun for “no glasses” and sexy Gossip Girl hair a.k.a. the ol’ reissue treatment. Come December 17, the double CD reissue will worm its sexy way into the high school football captain’s heart with reworkings of classic Matthew Herbert tracks by Mr. Oizo, Matmos, Plaid, Jamie Lidell, DJ Koze, Perry Farrel, Dave Aju, and Richard Devine. Accidental will also release a limited 12-inch of new and old material from Bodily Functions, complete with remixes by DJ Koze and Dave Aju.
