Rock soundscapes laced with sampled voices from the past: a unique concept by London duo PSB that’s as entertaining as it is educational
Sample-heavy soundscapes are this excellent London duo's stock-in-trade. Using live guitar, drums and synths – and sometimes piano, brass or even banjo – they create eerie, white-knuckle instrumentals with vocal tracks from old radio broadcasts, public information films and crackly archive speeches. This London date is part of a tour in support of their new album 'The Race for Space', which tells the story of the battle between the US and the USSR to take mankind beyond the surface of the Earth. Their live show uses projections of archive footage to take their musical histories into new, audiovisual dimensions.
