j willgoose, esq & his drumming companion wrigglesworth teach the lessons of the past through the music of the future. granted unique access to propaganda films from wwii-era britain by the bfi & setting them to new music, public service broadcasting unveil their official release of their amazing 'the war room ep'. lead track 'spitfire' - a driving, motorik krautrock influenced tune - is an adaptation of the 1942 leslie howard film 'the first of the few', telling the story of the origins of the talismanic fighter. highly recommended!
