Public Service Broadcasting White Star Liner Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:

Public Service Broadcasting present brand new EP 'White Star Liner'. The tracks were first performed earlier in the year at the BBC's Biggest Weekend event, which saw the band debut the new material on the slipways on which the Titanic was built. The EP tells the story of the construction of the ship and its early, tragic, demise. The band focus on the perspectives of those who built and sailed her, whilst showing their own talent for using a mixture of music and archive audio footage to provide a new perspective on well-known events. J. Willgoose, Esq. of Public Service Broadcasting says: "I thought it was an interesting challenge to tell the story of the ship's construction as part of Belfast's proud industrial history, the spirit of optimism of the pre-war age that she represented, and then an abstract and, I hope, respectful depiction of both the sinking of the ship (represented by the repeated Morse code distress call, C - Q - D) and the discovery of the wreck in 1985."

Featured Tracks:

1. The Unsinkable Ship
