James Cargill Talks: Broadcast & The Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age [EP]

This is a great video interview with bass player and electronics musician, James Cargill of Broadcast. His comments on UK television were especially interesting. Now I understand a lot about my contemporaries! They got their morbid sense of humor from television. I got it from all of those suspense filled horror movies my parents took me to go see at the local movie theater. Good stuff…

From XLR8r.com:
Broadcast’s first release since 2006’s The Future Crayon is a conceptual mini-album collaboration with The Focus Group (a.k.a. British designer/filmmaker Julian House), and their recent live show incorporates a 20-minute improvised soundtrack to one of House’s films. As James Cargill, the male half of the band, explains, the project was borne out of a lot of half-remembered children’s television shows of the early 1970s, drug parties from Hammer films, and a couple other cultural references that Americans might not get. Here, he explains what inspired him and bandmate Trish Keenan, and how a full appreciation of their new project might require a certain adjustment of expectations.
