Public Service Broadcasting by Dan Kendall.

With a mission to inform, educate and entertain, Public Service Broadcasting is the corduroy-clad brainchild of London-based J. Willgoose, Esq (banjo, guitar, laptop and keyboards), working in cahoots with his drumming companion, Wrigglesworth.

They sample old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material, and set them to anthemic new soundscapes, teaching us the lessons of the past through the music of the future.
