Support People who are Like Us

If you are wondering how to best support freelance artists right now, buy something of theirs through a channel that you know would pay them direct. This may be paypal, or for music people we recommend finding their bandcamp account and supporting them that way. Likewise, in the current climate we think it would be reasonable to take it that our forthcoming 4 concerts on mainland Europe will be cancelled, although we are waiting to find out right now. If you’d like to support us here is our bandcamp page. Many thanks.

People Like Us Co-host in WFMU 2020 Fundraiser

Vicki will co-host with Hearty White in the WFMU 2020 Fundraising Marathon. Many of you will know about WFMU already – this is a listener funded radio station where none of the DJs are paid – all give time in kind with a capital K. These days it’s a rare thing to see ventures like this, many have been stamped on by the big boot of capitalism. If you are able to donate to WFMU you can both get some great swag and also be in the running for all sorts of DJ prizes and premiums.

Tune into Hearty White, co-hosted by Vicki on WFMU on 5th March at 7pm-8pm NY time (that’s midnight that evening in the UK) or listen to the archive shortly after here.

Buy our full digital discography

Also have been updating our bandcamp with some more items, both digital and merchandise, including adding the option of buying the full digital discography with one click of a button, enabling you to get a 40% discount by doing so. 

As ever, you can if you wish access a lot of our work for free online from various places, it is very important for us ethically to continue to be generous with the “sharity” ideal even if we are low in income ourselves. HOWEVER, by buying from us you contribute to keeping us going financially and enabling us to produce more. We do this for a living, we don’t have a fancy side job, as is also the case with a lot of the artists we collaborate with!  So if you can chip in we more than appreciate it.
