Transmitters
I Fear No-One...
Elsewhen Records

Transmitters set ears ablaze with their postpunk irreverence in the late seventies. This compilation shows them as kin to the Fall and the Mekons, yet individual and fierce.

Some tracks hail from a John Peel session, ah, happy days. The abrasive sound is very modern sounding thanks to revivalists like Franz Ferdinand. This is less commercial and harder on the ears. But for fans of the Fall I don't see how you could go wrong. "Curious" is hardly a ballad, but softer an displays a neat chord sequence. At 22 tracks it drags at times but "Dead Siamese Sister" is a minor classic ripe for discovery amongst other choice cuts.
