We’ve delivered the new album to our online distributors and it has since gone out to all the usual outlets. First out of the traps with a pre-order link is iTunes, and if they take your fancy as a digital retailer, you can now order the EP for the frankly bargain-ous price of £7.99 (UK). Order here!
Public Service Broadcasting is the corduroy-clad brainchild of London-based J. Willgoose, Esq. who, along with drumming companion Wrigglesworth, is on a quest to inform, educate and entertain audiences around the globe.
PSB's uniquely spell-binding live AV Transmissions see them weave samples from old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material around live drums, guitar, banjo and electronics as they teach the lessons of the past through the music of the future - beaming our past back at us through vintage TV sets and state of the art modern video projection devices.
Debut album Inform – Educate – Entertain was released in May 2013 and entered the UK album charts at #21. It received widespread critical acclaim, including 5* Album of the Month from Artrocker Magazine plus 4* reviews from The Guardian, The Independent and many more. It was also picked by BBC 6Music DJs & staff as the 9th best album of the year and appeared in many best of the year lists.
New material – the subject of which is a closely guarded secret! – will follow later in the year.
Artrocker: “Genuinely original, innovating and amazing”
Janice Long,BBC Radio 2:“My new favourite band”
The Independent: “They blend the voices of the past with the music of the present to astounding effect”
Time Out: “Inspirational stuff”
John Kennedy, Xfm: “Absolutely brilliant”
