Public Service Broadcasting

Inform - Educate - Entertain

Rough Trade Shop favourites Public Service Broadcasting release their debut album on their own Test Card Recordings. Taking in archive material from the BFI and StudioCanal along with classic American public information films (such as the brutal driving-safety messages found on single 'Signal 30'), the album sees the corduroy-clad J. Willgoose, Esq. and his faithful drumming companion, Wrigglesworth, seeking to fulfil their mission statement over a wide range of subject matter and styles. The band weave samples from these films around live drums, guitar, banjo and electronics, creating an array of diverse tracks. What emerges is, by turns, thrilling, moving, funny and powerful; or, if you will, informative, educational and - most of all - entertaining. For fans of Stereolab, Krautrock, Lemon Jelly and British Sea Power.
Vinyl housed in gatefold sleeve with inner sleeve and download.
