“Absolutely, sensationally brilliant” – Tom Robinson, 6 Music
Public Service Broadcasting are a London-based duo whose main ingredients are: 1) J. Willgoose, Esq. on guitars, banjos, other stringed instruments, samplings, electronic things; 2) Wrigglesworth on drums, pianos and other electronic things.Taking samples from old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material, they teach the lessons of the past through the music of the future.
Following their debut EP in August 2010 (the originally-titled ‘EP One’), PSB released ROYGBIV to the masses in March 2012. The single won the Rebel Playlist on 6 Music and was on the receiving end of a 5* review in Artrocker magazine.
The band release The War Room EP in late May / early June 2012, with lead track Spitfire already taking off on the airwaves.Live transmissions at venues as diverse as Leefest, Koko, Village Underground, the Edinburgh Fringe and Tooting Market (yes) have seen the band’s unique AV show build up quite the reputation as they seek to inform, educate and entertain audiences around the nation – and, hopefully, world.Some more quotes:
