Our final report on the Flatpack Festival of 2011 features an interview with People Like Us and Ergo Phizmiz with music from their live audiovisual performance of The Keystone Cutups.

“Using the influence of slapstick comedy on the surrealists as a starting point, the piece takes us on a madcap journey, combining the techniques and popular imagery of the two genres”.
