I love the idea, and it's well executed. That said there are limitations in using public service film soundtracks as your vocal line...but in this world of me-toos and soundalikes, Public Service Broadcasting offer something original and should be thanked for it.

What a wonderful record! Modern yet retro at the same time. Motorik beats, driving guitars (and banjos), swirling synths and excerpts of films and programs from the 1930 to 1950s all combined to make something that makes your feet tap and bring your inner air guitar out.

I have been lucky enough to see the band live several times and it is faultlessly reproduced. A talented bunch of guys.

You can't help thinking that Herr Dinger and Herr Rother would have sounded like this if they had been born in the UK. Certainly there is more than a heavy nod to Neu! and the propulsive music that they made.

On paper, an album of electronically tinged indie-rock instrumental tracks with 1930s, 40s, and 50s samples sounds like it be more cerebral than emotional, but there's something about Inform Educate Entertain that gets under the skin. In other hands, the mostly male, Received Pronunciation samples that PSB use might be deployed ironically, or edited in ways that turn the words against their speakers; but here we're given what feel like generous portions, and nothing ostentatiously sneaky in the editing, so the whole work embodies a nostalgia for an era of 1930s-1950s idealism, national collective consciousness, and -- of course -- public service. Of course you can't help being aware that the power was being wielded by public-school- and grammar-school-educated white middle class men -- there are no regional accents here -- and that it wasn't a bed of roses, so the feeling isn't uncomplicated, but there is feeling here.
