Public Service Broadcasting – Go! (Live At Brixton)

If you can, go and see Public Service Broadcasting live. They’re great. Both the musicians and the ‘concept’. Now don’t say ‘yuk’ when I say ‘concept’, will you? Let me explain…

The album The Race For Space is one of the most extraordinary musical projects I’ve encountered the last years. On it, Public Service Broadcasting put impressive historical audio fragments from space documentaries to music. And when they perform it live, they add an extra element: the images that accompany the audio fragments. It’s incredible how all of those samples (both in sound and vision) melt together with the music.

In November 2015 they staged their show in O2 Brixton Academy where, as an added bonus, they added a choir, strings and horns to the party. The concert was recorded for the 2cd+dvd Live At Brixton, that I highly recommend. To get you in the mood, let me show you the live version of one of my favourites: Go!
