Public Service Broadcasting unveil the video for the first single from their upcoming second album, ‘The Race For Space’. A brassy, funk-heavy superhero theme song for the most famous man in the world at the time, ‘Gagarin’ reveals a new side to the band – not least their considerable dancing skills.

Once again given access to newly acquired BFI footage, this time of the Soviet space race, PSB’s J. Willgoose, Esq. explained the rationale behind the song: “We didn’t want to be too literal in our interpretation of the material we were given – material that was full of heroic language and a sense of exuberance, with lines like ‘the hero who blazed the trail to the stars’, and ‘the whole world knew him and loved him’. It seemed more appropriate to try and re-create some of that triumphant air with a similarly upbeat song – and when it came to creating the video, the best way we could think of to communicate that sense of joy was to get our dancing shoes on.”

In this episode of Pulp Pop, Steve Kent takes us inside the iOS and Android mobile game, DOES NOT COMMUTE. This episode was sponsored by Twitter user @RLE116.

Does Not Commute

From the award-winning makers of SMASH HIT, DOES NOT COMMUTE is a temporal paradox in which you have no one to blame but yourself. What starts out as a relaxing commute in a small town of the 1970′s quickly devolves into traffic chaos with hot dog trucks, sports cars, school buses and dozens of other vehicles. You drive them all.
Plan ahead. Don’t be late.

Available on iOS and Android platforms.

This is the story of how we could have gone to space. Maybe how we should have gone to space. This is the story of the Ministry of Space. The black budget that financed the move into space. The deaths of the test pilots, taken from the surviving Spitfire flyers of the Battle of Britain. And in 2000, the end of the Golden Age, as America and Russia begin moving into space. The secret revealed, and the destruction of a man who sacrificed himself for the Ministry of Space. Plus, a sketchbook section by CHRIS WESTON and an all-new appendix by WARREN ELLIS revealing the facts behind the fiction!

Pulp Pop 006 – Jimmy Cliff

Pulp Pop 006 – Jimmy Cliff
In this episode, Trent takes a look at Jimmy Cliffs 1969 self-titled album that defined the Rocksteady genre.
Jimmy Cliff (1969)

Jimmy Cliff reflected on this album in an interview with the AV CLUB:

My first big album, the second album I made [1969’s Jimmy Cliff], had a hit called “Wonderful World, Beautiful People” on it. It also had “Vietnam” and songs like that. It was my roots reggae album. After that, I went to Muscle Shoals and did another album called Another Cycle. Some of my fans were unhappy that I didn’t continue on my reggae train. So that was a chapter of my career that was incomplete. I always knew in my mind that I would complete it, and the way to complete it was to go back to the roots again.

From NJ.com:

During his Sunday night concert at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, Paul Simon welcome reggae great Jimmy Cliff as a special, unannounced guest. After mentioning that the rhythm of Cliff’s “Vietnam” inspired his own “Mother and Child Reunion,” he welcomed Cliff onto the stage, to sing on “Vietnam” (which Simon has covered, without Cliff, on other tour stops this year), “Mother and Child Reunion” and Cliff’s “The Harder They Come.”
