The Magical Misery Tour now on UbuWeb!

We are very pleased to present…

Our audiovisual performance from 2011, THE MAGICAL MISERY TOUR on UbuWeb.

This concert was created between June and September 2011 and premiered at “The Sound of Fear” at London’s Southbank Centre on 3rd September 2011, under the working title of “Horror Collage”. Now that the full length live set has been completed we have changed the name to something more fitting with the content. The source material is 95% from horror movies, with the content portraying not so much a scary nightmare but a journey through the underworld of everyday human experiences. It is not true to say you do not relate to this kind of horror movie. Truth is stranger than fiction. Having said this, People Like Us, as ever, see the positive and sometimes humorous side of the most ghastly scenerios, and by accompanying the edited found feature film footage with new sample collage pop songs, elevate you from the swamp.

Thanks Ubu!

People Like Us – “Horror Collage”
Live A/V performance from Vicki Bennett/People Like Us.
Sourcing from over 100 horror movies, People Like Us reflect upon narratives that occur and repeat within the horror genre. By grouping common concepts, and creating contextually related sample music compositions, entirely new stories emerge.
Horror Collage will be premiered at The Purcell Room in London’s Southbank Centre on

3rd September 2011 at “Sound Of Fear”.
