A live performance from English electronic soundscape duo. On their first visit to New Zealand, founding member, soundscape composer and guitarist J Wilgoose Esquire and his drummer, Wrigglesworth, delivered an impressive multi-media show featuring material from their two albums. The duo have established a reputation for searching out old British and American films, wartime propaganda reels, documentaries and crackly radio broadcasts and legally sampling the dialogue to create their own distinctive homage to the past, re-contextualized for a contemporary audience (RNZ)
