Broadcast and the Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age is a collaboration album by Broadcast and the Focus Group, released by Warp on 27 October 2009. Musician, graphic designer and Ghost Box Records co-founder Julian House (artist behind the Focus Group) had collaborated previously on artwork and packaging by British indie electronic group Broadcast.

In October 2009, Broadcast released an album with the Focus Group called Broadcast. In late 2009, their song I Found the F was covered by Gravenhurst on the Warp20 compilation, the band was chosen by Matt Groening to perform at the All Tomorrows Parties festival he curated in May 2010 in Minehead, England.

Broadcast might have once sounded like a group in thrall to the past, entranced by the haunted melodies of Stereolab and the fizz-bang sonic experimentation of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, but in a sense they have also proven to be well ahead of their time as well  . But like a strange mirage glimpsed in the depths of the English countryside. itch Cults Of The Radio Age is laced with enough wonder and intrigue to keep you coming back. It doesn’t make perfect sense, but the sense of mystery is a key in itself.

But that is not what Radio Age is about. It is about those textures and acidy little trips on the back pages of albums and films all over the 60s. Broadcast are so good, they can perfectly bring off what may SEEM formless and have the disciplne to make it work over an entire album. Everything segues well and works over the long haul here. This album is one of the closest anyone could come to experiencing a drug high without having to indulge in the real thing. Let your mind go and "Broadcast & The Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age" will take you on a unique trip you won't soon forget. 3 people found this helpful.

The new Broadcast album, in the company of Julian House’s Focus Group, has proved to be one of those records that resist, in some way, being written about. Perhaps it may be something to do with how Broadcast And The Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults Of The Radio Age is a slippery, fragmentary listen; a collage of 23 disjointed, often dislocated snippets that feel as if they’ve been harvested from a dusty collection of neglected old soundtracks

Broadcast and The Focus Group. Broadcast and The Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults Of The Radio Age. Overview (current section).

The difference with Broadcast and the Focus Group is that theirs is a postmodernism with a specific purpose. It seeks not show the world as it is, as a series of meaningless symbols, but to instead imagine a world that either never was or one that bubbles just a thin layer beyond perception. Witch Cults does not utilize esoterica as a means of reinventing dead genres to simultaneously celebrate and mock. It builds its present based on how the future looked in the past

Official repress for march 2015!

you secret
With Trish passing away, I highly doubt they're going to reissue any of the Broadcast catalog. Keep dreaming.

Tantil
Dreams can become reality, as you can see. Long life dreamers!

watchman
You spoke too soon.

Kirizius
It's been more than a year since the last comment, still no sign of a reissue and prices are still going up...Same goes for all the band's back catalogue, it's a shame, really....

Vivados
This album is a magical tome, defined by sonic emotion and collaborative efforts. A great and final "Broadcast" lp, that will stand the tests of the unchanging window.

Clodebd
Couldn't agree more! I love Broadcast and Boards of Canada, but I can't afford over $100 per record fer chrisakes!

Xisyaco
Frankly, this is a ridiculous situation, why WARP doesn't reissue this LP ? It has been sold at undecent prices on second hand market for the last 2 years, never profiting the label or the artists (at least those still alive...)Is there a brain at WARP ? Because it's the same situation with Bords of Canada LPs... When 4AD saw the ridiculous second hand prices reached by Scott Walker's Drift original 2xLP, they DID a reissue !What is WARP waiting for exactly ?

Tinavio
true. same with the earlier Broadcast albums prior to this i think
