If you've been to the People Like Us site in the past 2 weeks the
chances are you were unable to get in. This is because our server
detritus.net was forced to switch locations to a new home. Because
the server's address had to move, it also took some time for the
internet to find where we are now (techspeak, this). Then on top of
that, the new home is more expensive and as a result we've had to
make some decisions about bandwidth for a number of our sites or pay
more money, not to detritus who are in the same boat, but the company
detritus is supplied by. This has in some cases meant sites hosted
by detritus having to take down mp3s. PLU have opted to keep up mp3s
but to restrict how many people can download (throttling). This is
obviously a financial decision alone that we've had to make and we
are all looking into other ways to host not only work of PLU, but all
detrivores (ie http://www.detritus.net hosted sites). So anyway,
that's why. And here's some news.

lineup which will be announced once confirmed.

Also happening - PLU are currently making a John Peel session. This
will be broadcast at the end of January. Will confirm the date
nearer the time.

The "Stifled Love" LP now exists, and is still ambling way over to
Europe at present. If you are based in the US we suggest you buy
straight from <http://www.soleilmoon.com>Soleilmoon.com. We will
sell a limited number through the PLU site but don't have any copies
available yet. Once we do you can get them by means of Paypal
through http://www.peoplelikeus.org/buy.htm. And while you're there
you'll also see that we have the PLU Rough Trade For Us label 7"
single "Downtown Once More" available also.

Lastly, the Flash section (click on Enter) of the People Like Us has
at last been updated with the new releases and more. Thanks to Wayne
for doing this. Chec out his site on http://www.s-x1.co.uk/

OK, that's all for this year. Happy 2003.
