Free Sunshine

by People Like Us

/
  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Vicki Bennett has been operating under the name People Like Us for over 30 years. Her work encompasses music, film, radio, performance, installation and 2D work. Her every practice displays her consummate skills as a collagist, able to combine high and low culture with incredible dexterity. Meanwhile her recent 360 degree cinema piece ‘Gone Gone Beyond’ was hailed as a groundbreaking work of power and grace.

    Heaven’s Lathe is honoured to be releasing an exclusive new single from People Like Us.

    ‘Free Money’ is a psychedelic bricolage, mixing excerpts from Terry Southern’s acidic satire ‘The Magic Christian’ with Lionel Bart’s ‘Oliver’, The Beatles’ ‘Abbey Road’, and so much more. Here, as elsewhere, Bennett takes material we think we know inside out, then morphs it into something bright and new.

    The flip-side is ‘Eve of Sunshine’: a true epic, which originally appeared in Bennett’s deft and daft AV work ‘Consequences (One Thing Leads To Another)’. Barry Maguire’s ‘Eve of Destruction’ is recombined with all manner of material to create something both dramatic and kitsch. It showcases how People Like Us’s music can be seductive, moving, comforting and hilarious. Often within the same composition.

    ‘Always witty and irresistible... Bennett has proved herself an alchemist of popular music, able to push her source material into fresh and engaging places.’ - Wire magazine

    ‘Bennett is a transformative artist... unique and uncategorizable... her music will make you smile even as it gives you goose bumps.’ - Dangerous Minds

about

A grand? Not really. With this release we can't actually offer you the digital files only. But BC rules mean we have to put a price here. Sorry.
