10:17 Late Edition
11:06 Womad Taranaki 2015
In this programme - an interview with and live performance from English electronic soundscape duo Public Service Broadcasting. On their first visit to New Zealand, founding member, soundscape composer and guitarist J Wilgoose Esquire accompanied by his equally bizarrely named drummer, Wrigglesworth, delivered an impressive multi media show that featured material from their two albums. They have established a reputation by searching out old British and American films, wartime propaganda reels, documentaries and crackly radio broadcasts and legally sampling the dialogue to create their own distinctive homage to the past re-contextualized for a contemporary audience.
