About:
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 🙂

Music For The Fire now online at UbuWeb

The 2010 collaboration between People Like Us & Wobbly which became the CD “Music For The Fire” is now available for mp3 download at UbuWeb.

The fruit of many years of work, this album began as People Like Us & Wobbly collected and collaged their way through various depictions of misfired communications and heartbreak sourced from popular culture for a series of live improvisations. Music For The Fire is a plunderphonic concept album depicting the lifespan of a relationship, as told through samples of hundreds of different songs and voices who had no idea they were all telling the same story until they were all spliced together.

It is still available for purchase in CD and FLAC form at Illegal Art.
