PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING Aug 24, 2019
Ok, final warnings for those of you (in the UK) who want to watch the BBC Proms performance of The Race For Space, specially re-arranged by JFAbraham with The Multi-Story Orchestra and London Contemporary Voices. It drops off the iPlayer in the small hours of Monday morning and - for various boring reasons that we've already mentioned - we have no plans to do anything with it ourselves for the foreseeable future so get your VHSs or modern-day equivalents sorted before it vanishes into the ether. For the full 'I was there' experience make sure to watch it at an ambient temperature of roughly 45 degrees celsius on the hottest day in history. Lots of love, PSB HQ

Only two and a half weeks until our final festival appearance of the year, at the one and only Moseley Folk & Arts Festival. It's a great lineup and we're honoured to be co-headlining the Friday night. Final tickets are available here - hope to see some of you there! http://www.moseleyfolk.co.uk/tickets

Managed to sail past this date quite serenely, but it's now officially over ten years since the first PSB gig, at the Selkirk Tooting (still a mighty fine pub). Further pictorial evidence provided. Onwards!
PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING Aug 07, 2019
Just a reminder that if you'd like to (re?)watch our BBC Proms performance of The Race For Space with The Multi-Story Orchestra and London Contemporary Voices, you have 18 days left to do so... & for those asking, we don't have any current plans to release it ourselves as album 4 stuff is taking up all of our time and efforts for the foreseeable future... so maybe dig out your VHS recorder or find a modern equivalent if you want to 'keep' it!

In & amongst the Proms and Truck Festival dates last week, we confirmed a show in Wakefield on September 6. We’ll be performing The Race For Space (and the requisite Other Smash Hits) in full as part of Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon. We were a bit slow publishing details here (sorry) and tickets have fairly flown out. The only remaining tickets for this show are from: Jumbo Records: https://www.jumborecords.co.uk/tickets-single.asp?event_id=27360 Crash Records: https://www.crashrecords.co.uk/product/public-service-broadcasting-the-race-for-space-06-09-19-wakefield-market-hall/ and from tomorrow they will be available in person from Wah Wah Records in Wakefield. This’ll be our first time back in Wakefield since our gig at The Hop back in 2013 - look forward to seeing some of you there!

‘Audiences love it when a performer walks the tightrope in front of them; like sports fans, they feel like their support is what keeps the team winning.’ - David Byrne, How Music Works It definitely felt like walking the tightrope on Thursday at the BBC Proms, although we were of course assisted by both the fantastic The Multi-Story Orchestra and London Contemporary Voices (wonderfully arranged by our own JFAbraham) as well as our own brassy gents, but we definitely owe a big thank you for all the support on the night and along the way. Here’s us doing ‘Go!’, dedicated to Chris Kraft in the wake of his death last Monday. The whole show is available on iPlayer for the rest of this month, both audio and video, and a big thanks, too, to a raucous TRUCK FESTIVAL crowd for a really fun show the day after. Lots of love, PSB HQ https://youtu.be/DPa4Sz_j2io

Our BBC Proms show is being televised tonight at 11pm on BBC Four. Many, many thanks to London Contemporary Voices, the Multi-Story Orchestra, the BBC for asking us to play such a prestigious event and of course (!) our very own JFAbraham for his fantastic arrangements. You can also listen below at any time on Radio 3. Lots of love, PSB HQ https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00071mr

Happy Yuri's Night, everyone - here's to Yuri Alexeyevich, the original and still the best (well, my favourite at least - JW). "The whole world knew him and loved him." Off to play a song we wrote for him in an hour or two at Between the Beats festival here in Lörrach.

In case you missed TOTEM - Cirque du Soleil performing to Go! as part of the opening of the BAFTA Awards 2019, here it is. Thanks a lot to everyone in the BAFTA Production team for getting us involved.

We're very excited to be appearing at the Natural History Museum, London on Friday 17 May as part of their Museum of the Moon launch night. In honour of the opening of Luke Jerram's fantastic exhibition and the looming 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, we'll be appearing underneath the blue whale in the Hintze Hall and playing The Race For Space album in full (as well as a few other Enormous Smash Hits from the back catalogue). Tickets are on sale NOW at http://www.nhm.ac.uk/events/public-service-broadcasting.html and cost £46.50 each.* * A note about these prices: we realise they're higher than the average show but they reflect the cost and difficulty of bringing an entire production into a room not normally configured for concerts and setting it all up in roughly 3 hours once the museum closes. We've always tried our best to keep prices as affordable as possible and this show is no different.
