The Show: Public Service Broadcasting’s Eleven Cities Tour

Elfstedentocht. Eleven Cities Tour.

It’s the world’s biggest ice skating race, taking in the Dutch cities of Leeuwarden, Sneek, IJlst, Sloten, Stavoren, Hindeloopen, Workum, Bolsward, Harlingen, Franeker and Dokkum, but it only happens when all the waterways connecting the cities are frozen to a depth of at least 15cm and the last time that happened was 1997.

That 16 year gap didn’t stop the Explore The North Festival commissioning Joint favourites Public Service Broadcasting to write two brand new songs to accompany archival footage of the event. The results were released on line this week and Elfstedentocht Part One made it onto today’s playlist.

The Show: Hell’s bells

A while back we played a track from the brand new Pantha du Prince album “Elements of Sound” that he made with The Bell Laboratory. Forgot to post a video though. Below is the video for “Spectral Split”. We will somehow shoehorn the whole 17 minutes and 35 seconds of it into the show today. Read about the making of the album over at XLR8R.
