‘Mr. Watson, come here.’
Speaking of first transmission(s), today I was thrilled to learn that the new project of the same name by Youth and ‘Big’ Paul Ferguson will be released on CD on the Malicious Damage label. Youth (bass) and Big Paul (earth-rumbling tribal drums) were the incredibly pounding-yet-funky original rhythm section of Killing Joke, but they essentially hadn’t worked together since 1982.
Transmission also happens to be the name of a fantastic song by Joy Division. “Radio, live transmission. Listen to the silence, let it ring on…”
So what the hey, it’s the title of my first post.
