Public Service Broadcasting Records

The concept for London-based band Public Service Broadcasting’s The Race for Space album is the 20th Century Space Race between USA and Russia.

The band had the great idea to make the record ‘flippable’ so there would essentially be two front covers, American and Russian. We talked about how to balance the concept so as to avoid it pushing the Cold War rivalry aspect too much, and instead make sure it was celebratory of each nation’s achievements.
