Vicki's artist statement:

Since 1991 I have been working with A/V multimedia under the name People Like Us. The output has consisted of 20 album releases, numerous singles, live sets (both solo and collaborations), remixes, a DVD, and over 150 radio shows. I am primarily involved working almost exclusively with audio and visual archives of various kinds, and processing analogue and digital media across many platforms and formats. Working with archives reflects my philosophy that past works should be readily available for reference both in theory and practice for present and future practitioners.The art of People Like Us centres on the appropriating or sampling of works that exist with a previous context. This "raw" footage is sometimes recognisable with its own history and connotations, and sometimes obscure, abstract or concrete sounds. The golden rule is always to recontextualise the source's sound or meaning, the aim being to take this footage on a journey, where along the way it meets other material, all collaborating on a platform that could never happen in real life, creating a unique atmosphere.

Please note: The People Like Us website, UbuWeb and WFMU are the only places on the entire web where we maintain info about our work.  The rest is second hand news!

I bought most of these on CD's many years, so reviewing them here is serious catch up (I'll leave it to the PLU page on Rate Your Music site. In the meantime, I'm having a blast, especially the holiday related tracks!! Take THAT, Bing Crosby!!!
