Biography

London, England (2011 – present)

Public Service Broadcasting is a London, England-based pseudonymous musical duo consisting of J. Willgoose, Esq. on guitar, banjo, other stringed instruments, samplings and electronic instruments; and Wrigglesworth on drums, piano and electronic instruments, formed in 2011.

Taking samples from old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material, they teach the lessons of the past through the music of the future.

PSB released debut single, Roygbiv, to the masses in March 2012. The single won the Rebel Playlist on BBC 6 Music (the first of the band’s 4 victories in the publicly-voted Rebel Playlist in 2012!) and was on the receiving end of a 5* review in Artrocker magazine.

Next came The War Room EP in May 2012. The EP included BBC 6 Music favourites Spitfire and London Can Take It, both of which became mainstays on the daytime playlist, as well as receiving multiple plays on XFM, BBC Radio 2, & Absolute Music. Live sessions with Gideon Coe (6 Music) & John Kennedy (XFM) followed. The War Room received ‘CD of the Week’ in the Independent on Sunday and has sold over 12,000 copies to date.

Fresh from the success of The War Room EP, Public Service Broadcasting set their sights on the summit of Everest.

J. Willgoose, Esq. and drumming companion Wrigglesworth have teamed up with Studio Canal Plus to adapt the 1953 feature-length documentary ‘The Conquest of Everest’. The stunning film was shot by expedition member George Lowe, and recounts Hillary, Tenzing et al’s successful ascent of the tallest mountain in the world.
