“The entire album is an exorcism of an dead universe. Nothing can stay together here. It’s hauntology as a pasture of incidental tones and half-ripped photographs. The video footage is unable to focus. The lens’s view is eternally obstructed. The wild blurs of compounded biographies come off like a fever dream of a memory play.” – Timothy Gabriele (12 November 2009). Broadcast and the Focus Group: Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age – PopMatters.
Broadcast’s Black Session – recorded live at La Maison de la Radio in Paris on May 4th, 2000 – features the original lineup that toured in support of their album, The Noise Made By People. It includes all the electronic segues and dissonance between tunes, along with stellar renditions of early singles, album cuts and B-sides. You can download the whole recording HERE.
