about

Brave new old work by Vicki Bennet aka People Like Us. A journey into her early radio experiments with some dating back 20 years!

Vicki Bennett’s People Like Us began life as a three hour radio show on Brighton’s Festival Radio in 1990 called Gobstopper. She went on to release around 20 solo albums based on her radio sound collages, and after a decade working primarily with sound, has increasingly worked with film and images. She has recently produced collage and multi-screen, multi-speaker work, including 2013’s touring film and performance piece Notations, a film used as a score for improvising musicians, and Gone, Gone Beyond (2017-?), a 10 screen, 8 speaker immersive cinema work for Recombinant Media Lab’s Cinechamber.

An advocate of open digital distribution, Bennett’s entire back catalogue is available for download via UbuWeb, and she is also the host of long-running radio show DO or DIY on WFMU. She has collaborated extensively with Ergo Phizmiz, Negativland’s Don Joyce, Wobbly and Kenneth Goldsmith, and many others. Vicki Bennett also curated/programmed RADIO BOREDCAST in Winter 2011/Spring 2012. It was first broadcast on basic.fm and now is archived at WFMU. More recently, Vicki Bennett has programmed OPTIMIZED!, a week-long expanded radio stream on WFMU 6-10 June 2016.

Early Radio Works Vol 1 is a re-compiled re-issue of Vicki Bennett’s aka People Like Us early radio collages from the 90’s and early 2000’s originally first broadcast on the radio then released on CD and vinyl. An enlightened insight into Vicki’s early radio collage work and a perfect addition to the People Like Us work cannon.

Side A is a new collage created from People Like Us radio works from between 1992 & 1999. Originally released on Lowest Common Dominator (1994), Jumble Massive (1996), Beware The Whim Reaper (1996), Lassie House (1997), Thermos Explorer (2000) & A Fistful of Knuckles (2000).
Side AA is from Guide To Broadcasting (1994) & Thermos Explorer (2000).
