Public Service Broadcasting

     We just today came across this unique band, Public Service Broadcasting. The musical duo is based out of London consisting of J. Willgoose, Esq. on the guitar, banjo, and other stringed instruments, and Wrigglesworth on drums and piano.  Both members take samples from electronic instruments, old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material in order to construct these tracks.  The two have been creating these impressive pieces since 2009.

     PSB attempts to "teach the lessons of the past through the music of the future" with their main focus to inform, educate, and entertain.  Their most recent album was released on May 28, 2012 entitled The War Room, where both the following tracks derive from.

     The music esentially speaks for itself and is evocative with the brilliant imaging of London during the war.
