Recent page additions/updates (newest first):

Rest In Peace to Patrick Taormina a.k.a SactownConnection a.k.a Pmuny. The creator of this website - he painstakingly put together this website to document the history of People Under The Stairs and personally transcribed their lyrics. We sadly lost Pat in June 2016 and will miss him as the keystone of the P Army.
In June 2017 we have been able to get The Point of The Rhyme back online. Overwhelming gratitude and thanks to Beaugeste for archiving the original site, re-implemented by YoYoPo.

Added album page, lyrics pages, and updated cross-references for Step 2 of The Gettin' Off Stage.

Early 2016 (forgot to add a note here 'til later):
Added album page, lyrics pages, and updated cross-references for Step 1 of The Gettin' Off Stage.

BIG UPDATE: Transitioned most weblinks and banners from the (now-defunct) PL70 website over to the new PUTS website (still need to get rid of the "BUY NOW" ones though), made a number of link & graphics edits to the main page and side bars, split off the compilation albums from the 10 "official" albums, made a page for the incremental American Men Vol. 2 Soundcloud release, and transcribed the first AMV2 track, released today. Next up on the list (I hope): stay tuned for lyrics to Family Circus & 10 Years of Thes One. I'm also planning on relacing the "BUY NOW" PL70 links with iTunes/Amazon Music/Google Play links.

Added album page and updated cross-references after The Gettin' Off Stage announcement. Will update with actual lyrics pages once the album's released!

Added album page and updated cross-references for the Live LP, Big Sky Shakedown.

Added album pages for Where The Piecelock Ends and The Family Circus mix tapes. I plan on doing lyrics pages and adding the songs to the song list (at a later date) to keep them consistent with the Xmas beat tape, etc.

Added two more recently-released tracks unrelated to albums: Summer Nights (by Kat O1O feat. PUTS) and Boots In The Pool (Thes One - Wonderful Radio Remix) (by DJ Day feat. Thes One).

May 2014:
Transcribed and added all 12 Step Program album lyrics, along with lyrics and associated pages for "Holiday Party" and "12SP Commercial". Even managed to have Thes One personally verify the 12SP lyrics through "The Strand" (working on having him check the others...). Still haven't finished 10YOTO stuff.

Added 12 Step Program album page ahead of release date (and related links around site). Will update upon album release. (And will try to get the rest of 10 Years of Thes One in the meantime...)

Week of 02/16/14:
Added Thes' University of Oregon lecture link to the main page. It had been on the site, but not linked to anything yet, but it's off the main page now. Enjoy!

Added 10 Years Of Thes One box set album page to the solo releases list for Thes One. Not fully completed yet.

Added a note to the American Men, Vol. 1 page regarding the actual number of album pressings made (in an interview with Oliver Wang from August 2011, Thes One claims that much less than 1000 copies were made).

Changed the "like Mr. Cooper, yo, we hangin'" reference at the bottom of the Acid Raindrops page. (Thanks to Stankbomber for pointin' that one out!!!)

Added pages for the promo 7" single The Mop and it's associated track The Mop.
Added YouTube audio clips to the November 2011 interview pages: San Francisco & Oakland

Added functionality to the website to aid users in adding comments, lyrics changes, and whatever other madness they feel like contributing.

Added a "Final note on samples" to the About This Site page to help clarify why song sample lists are not included on this site.

Added this site updates page.

Added the 11/10/11 After-show Interview in Oakland

Added the 11/01/11 Backstage Interview in S.F.
