NY-based quartet People Get Ready has announced the release of Rusty Greg Jherek Luke
remix EP, out on March 6th with Quite Scientific Records. The original songs are from the band’s self-titled debut EP, which David Byrne highlighted as one of the best releases of 2011 in his playlist on Studio 360
with Kurt Andersen. Remixers on the forthcoming EP include band member Luke Fasano, Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier, Jherek Bischoff from Parenthetical Girls, and Rusty Santos, who’s done production work for Animal Collective, TV on the Radio and Ariel Pink. After having performing at CMJ’ 11, People Get Ready looks forward to a series of unique NYC live shows. The band is scheduled to perform the accompanying music to a new piece by choreographer Jodi Melnick for a four nights, and will participate in an
adaptation of Phillip Glass’ Einstein on the Beach
opera, put on by the writer himself.
People Get Ready is a collaboration between Steven Reker (touring dancer/guitarist to David Byrne who also choreographed the T-shirt scene in Miranda July’s movie The Future) and Luke Fasano (Yeasayer/Ex-Models), along with Jen Goma (A Sunny Day In Glasgow) and James Rickman (Slow Gherkin). The band’s first pieces took place in 2010 at NY’s experimental performance space The Kitchen as part of its series “Dance and Process.” The group started collaborating with dancers – reshaping their live show, and their performances are currently being scheduled in theaters and art centers around North America.
