Public Service Broadcasting Release 'Go!' Video
. (Prog) Public Service Broadcasting have released a video for their track Go! from second album The Race For Space. The follow-up to 2013 debut Inform - Educate - Entertain was released this week via Test Card Recordings. Its theme is the US and Soviet space race in from the 1950s to the early 1970s, and Go! concentrates on the Apollo moonshots.
Mastermind J Willgoose Esq decided to focus on NASA's mission control centre rather than on the spacecraft itself. He says: "The first time I heard the call-outs and the replies, there was such excitement and frenetic-ness to it.
"The finished result is a fiery and confident speed-trial of a track, with an infectious chorus and the most unlikely sing-along dialogue of the year, all counting down to the moon landing itself, when Neil Armstrong utters the relief-filled words 'The Eagle has landed'."
He says of the Apollo era: "I find it a particularly sad indictment of our species that arguably our greatest technological and spiritual achievement - leaving our own planet and walking on another celestial body - is viewed by the more cynical as a colossal waste of money or, worse, as the greatest hoax ever perpetuated."
