Public Service Broadcasting are a duo based in London, England who formed in 2009. Since their debut they have released two studio albums along with two extended plays and are one of the most acclaimed and successful instrumental bands of their generation.
Never let it be said that bands today are running out of ideas. Public Service Broadcasting are an instrumental music duo consisting of two almost completely anonymous musicians known only as J. Willgoose Esq and Wrigglesworth who stormed out of London in late 2009 claiming to “teach the lessons of the past through the music of the future” via the medium of their energetic mix of dance-punk and art-rock. They're a high concept rock band, essentially, in an age where we can find out what most of our favourite musicians had for breakfast by checking their Instagram account, that sense of mystery is more fresh and exciting than it's ever been. The band began life as Willgoose's solo project, where he was inspired by listening to archive material from Radio 4 to combine samples from old public service announcements with cutting edge indie rock and electronica. He debuted live as Public Service Broadcasting in late 2009 with a gig at the Tooting, London's The Selkirk pub and shortly afterwards, released the project's debut effort, “EP One”.
Almost immediately, Willgoose's project had made a name for itself, and as the offers for live appearances started coming through, Willgoose recruited Wrigglesworth to play drums for their live shows. These shows just added to the amount of hype being generated for the band, especially thanks to the fact that the band were essentially fronted by an old, walnut-veneered television from the 1960's. The band released their second E.P, the Second World War themed “The War Room”, in May 2012 and their debut album, “Inform-Educate-Entertain”, came one year afterwards in 2013. Ever since then, the band have remained one of the most exciting cult bands of today, with an astonishing live act and great songs in the form of their singles “Go!” and “Spitfire”. Truly, they're a band that could never have come along at any other time than now, and it'll be a long time before we see a band as thrillingly unique and uniquely thrilling as them. For that, they come highly recommended.
