PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING
Australian Tour May 2018
Handsome Tours is proud to announce headline shows from London-based band Public Service Broadcasting, in Sydney and Melbourne this May 2018. Supporting at both shows will be Melbourne artist Alexander Biggs.
Public Service Broadcasting is the corduroy-clad brainchild of London-based J. Willgoose, Esq. who, along with his drumming companion, Wrigglesworth and their bass player, keys and horns man extraordinaire, JF Abraham, 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 – beaming our past back at us through vintage TV sets and state of the art modern video projection devices.
Willgoose has an established reputation for weaving forensic, historical research into evocative storytelling. On new album Every Valley PSB take us on a journey down the mineshafts of the South Wales valleys, using the history of coal mining to shine a light on the disenfranchised. The critically-acclaimed album was released on Play It Again Sam in July 2015 and charted at #4 in the UK album charts.
Every Valley follows previous albums, the silver-certified The Race For Space, which went on to spawn a remix and live album, as well as their excellent debut LP Inform – Educate – Entertain.
Public Service Broadcasting have quickly developed a reputation as one of the most exciting live acts in the UK. Their live shows feature extraordinary production and are not to be missed this May!
