Need a demented holiday soundtrack to add that je-ne-sais-quoi to your Christmas celebration? Then take a listen to this. People Like Us, aka Vicki Bennett, who's been appropriating and remixing found footage and sound into her own surreal blend for over 17 years now, put together this special Christmas mix in 2004 as part of Christian Marclay's Sounds of Christmas project at the Tate Modern. For this interactive installation/performance, Marclay invited notable turntablists and DJs to remix his personal collection of 1,200 Christmas albums live. People Like Us use Marclay's yuletide LPs to make one ridiculous cacophony, and this track will surely jumpstart a round of al-al-al-aF or Fa-la-la-la.
