PEOPLE LIKE US & POREST – OPTIMIZED! [CREP49]
People Like Us “All On A Beautiful Day”
Porest “The Parallel Broadcasts”
Shipping November 2017
The Parallel Broadcasts presents Porest’s recordings from the covert sector of his archives. Culled from shortwave and FM broadcasts, these selections were intercepted via prepared radio – finely tuned to receive what is known in certain circles as parallel broadcasting. Content explores the trauma of emerging global consciousness, acute cultural antipology and the urgent placement of democratic music today.
Recorded on location in Jan/Feb, 2016 – Featuring contributions from Paul Staufenbiel and Michael Darr
All On A Beautiful Day was recorded in Spring 2016 by People Like Us for “Optimized!” – a week-long online a/v radio station programmed by Vicki Bennett, housed on WFMU.org which experimented with ideas of what radio might be in the world of high speed internet broadcasting. The content included 26 new a/v artist works, including both this and Porest’s Parallel Broadcasts, where people were invited to respond to the word “optimized”.
- A – All on a Beautiful Day
- AA – The Parallel Broadcasts

PEOPLE LIKE US – ABRIDGED TOO FAR [Discrepant LP CREP41]
Release date 31st March 2017 – available now!
ABRIDGED TOO FAR is the first of a series of vinyl by Discrepant to celebrate this being the 25th year of People Like Us publishing albums. First released in digital-only form in 2004 exclusively for UbuWeb, this album includes Vicki’s John Peel session and performances for WFMU, amongst others, both from 2003, and now comes packaged with brand new artwork designed by Vicki Bennett.
We have a new print available for sale – it was recently created while making the a/v performance Citation City, collaging movie content of a segue from a scene of hands at a typewriter cutting across to the playing of a piano. We have sized it as such that it will fit into an IKEA frame which you can buy yourself (IKEA: RIBBA 23cmx23cm). We are selling at an affordable price (see below in US dollars), postage INCLUDED.
“Don’t Think Right, It’s All Twice” by People Like Us
Release date: 31 October 2013 (preorder 7 October)
Cutting Hedge SNIP001 (available initially mailorder only from us)
It’s always felt important that my work be a total experience, not singularly appealing to either the eye or ear, for it to be as integrated an experience as possible. The music on this album was composed between 2006 and 2013 initially for five different live performances of moving image and sound. Since publishing formats have developed in recent years we’ve found the internet serves us really well as a distribution tool in the gift economy. One can find the accompanying visual elements of some of this music at ubu.com/film/plu.html. However, as well as the eye and ear is the sense of touch, and there is nothing like holding the object as well! — Vicki Bennett

We are dedicated to providing as much as possible for free or as cheaply as possible and strong encourage others to invest in the gift economy. We realise this is a couple more dollars than we’re usually charging but we are financing this ourselves and need to recoup costs. It is unlikely we will profit from this but we do need to make ends meet! We hope you understand, and continue to appreciate how much we continue to also give much for free 🙂

Update (26 Dec): This item is now deleted. Copies ordered just before the deadline will be posted in the next week, and earlier copies have already been mailed out.
We are pleased to announce a new 8-inch lathe-cut square picture disc on Hasenbart’s series of limited lathe cut Christmas singles. The previously unreleased “Dreaming” collages and edits several versions of a well known Christmas tune (originally dubbed over selected horror film samples) which formed part of the live performance “The Magical Misery Tour”.
The record is a 1-sided 8″ square picture disc with artwork by Vicki Bennett (full colour printing on both sides, stamped on the back, audio on one side). It will only be produced until DECEMBER 24 2014 and then deleted forever.
All copies will be cut individually on Hasenbart’s vintage 1940’s Presto 6N lathe cut machine on laminated cardboard so they are not as thick as regular vinyl records – the unique format has been exclusively designed by Hasenbart and resembles an oversized postcard record. PLEASE NOTE: Obviously the sound quality will not match a modern vinyl cut but the music has been specifically selected for this release and the sound of the machine (with all its quirks) is an essential part of the record.
