Transmission 4707

Lemmings are small furry rodents who inhabit the Arctic regions of North America and Europe. They neither migrate nor roam. thus, their rapid breeding soon exhausts all available food and space. Their home becomes a morass of hungry, scurrying lemmings running to and fro on top of each other with predators such as owls, foxes , wolves and bears eating huge numbers at will. Starved, unsheltered, and worked up into a state of of nervous exhaustion by overcrowding and fatigue, they die by the thousands in a suicidal ritual procession to the sea.

We pay tribute to the Lemming with a set of tunes by and about these poor misunderstood creatures. The Dutch band Lemming gives us an early B-side, Van Der Graaf Generator delivers a tune from the classic Pawn Heart and The National Lampoon Lemmings show, featuring a young John Belushi, goes to The Bottom of the Barrel. You get music from new bands like The New York Dolls, New Race and The New Violin Summit and dub messages from JA with Lee "Scratch" Perry, King Tubby and Linton Kwesi Johnson. The show ends with a lethal dose of the blues from Joe Cocker, The Mad Dogs and The Englishmen.
