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.
2015 saw the release of PSB’s sophomore album, ‘The Race for Space’. The album takes as its inspiration the story of the American and Soviet space race from 1957-1972 and retells this using sound samples from the British Film Institute. Like its predecessor, the album received widespread critical praise and reached No. 11 in the UK Album Chart as well as gaining Silver Certification for upwards of 60,000 sales.
