Public Service Broadcasting

Combining music, spoken word, and visuals, London-based duo Public Service Broadcasting were formed in 2010 when a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter known as J. Willgoose, Esq. recruited the equally regally named drummer Wrigglesworth following a string of eclectic but, ultimately, unfruitful musical outings that had been going on since the late '90s. Inspired by listening to archive material from BBC Radio 4, Willgoose began to delve deeper, searching for both audio clips and film footage from throughout the 20th century that he could possibly complement with indie/electronic music and vice-versa. Public Service Broadcasting's first release, EP One, appeared in August 2010 and was the perfect introduction to the pair's concept, featuring "New Dimensions in Sound," which sampled an infomercial for a record player alongside vibrant indie rock that built into a crescendo of distorted guitar. PSB began to make a name for themselves on the live circuit with an unmistakable set that featured an old walnut-veneered '60s television that they lovingly described as the band's "frontman." A year after EP One, the duo released the single "Roygbiv" and then The War Room, another EP, this time focusing on World War II and, in particular, The Blitz. Sampling propaganda films, sirens, and a film about the invention of the Spitfire on a track of the same name, the EP created further buzz and radio play for Public Service Broadcasting as they prepared their debut album Inform - Educate - Entertain, which was released in May 2013 on their own label, Test Card. By this point, the guitar, banjo, and electronics of J. Willgoose, Esq. and the intricate drumming from the jazz-trained Wrigglesworth were developing into a well-rounded, well-oiled machine. One of the album's highlights, "Everest," was based around The Conquest of Everest, a 1953 film documenting Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay's first successful ascent of the mountain, including the fitting line "two very small men/cutting steps in the roof of the world." Public Service Broadcasting went on to tour the album and play a host of festivals in the summer of 2013, and secured a support slot with the Rolling Stones in London's Hyde Park. In 2015, the duo issued their sophomore studio LP, The Race for Space, an ambitious, sample-heavy conceptual piece concerning the American and Soviet space race from 1957-1972. The record was met with widespread acclaim, and the band followed up in 2016 with a companion remix album, The Race for Space [Remixes]. ~ Daniel Clancy

Remarkable story tellers! Just listened to all of "Race to Space" again. From echoes of Kennedy to the end of the Apollo program you are taken on a whirlwind tour of manned space flight. I know the stories and my pulse quickens at "Go" and "Other side" I choke at "Fire In The Cockpit" and am left inspired by "Tomorrow". As an album it stands out. As an aural history it crackles with the wonder of looking beyond that which is immediately visible. God speed!
