Plat du Jour is a studio album by British electronic musician Matthew Herbert. It was released on Accidental Records in 2005. The album was created using the sounds of food preparation and production. Celebrity" features a vocal contribution from Dani Siciliano.
In 2001, Matthew Herbert released The Mechanics of Deconstruction under his Radio Boy moniker. Each of the album's tracks was created using a single commercial product that Herbert found objectionable. Selections included "Nike" and "Television" and "Gap", along with food-themed offerings like "Coca-Cola" and "McDonalds". The figure is chosen because 60 beans is the approximate number used to create a shot of Starbucks espresso.
PLAT DU JOUR is a Eclectic Prog, Progressive Rock artist from France. PLAT DU JOUR is mentioned to be one of Ovide's early par-experimental, par-groovy projects (the radical SO & CO. and this laid-back one) - making it more surprising not only that he is a guest musician, but that he also plays drums instead of guitar -, while nothing relevant is known about the other artists.

Elsewhere, there are tracks made from recordings of salmon milling around, cans of Coke fizzing and beet sugars crystallising, the latter two recorded at the Fat Duck at Bray. Indeed, Part Chimp's Tim Cedar and Hamilton Industry used to be in Ligament, north London's answer to the Jesus Lizard. The Chimps's second album is a marvellously sludgy affair, malevolent and slack by turns. Songs such as 'Hello Bastards' and 'Dr Horse Pt 2' are anachronisms in a well-styled world of angles and edges, but the innard-quaking sensations they induce feel good. Petra Jean Phillipson.
