Transmission 15007

It's warp(ed) speed right out of the gate with The Olivia Tremor Control, Tomorrow and William Shatner from his 1968 classic The Transformed Man! Then it's sophomore efforts from Slade, The Pretty Things and Howlin' Wolf*. Things get spacey with Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and two varieties of Isis. We finally spin wonderfully out of control with Wire, The Ponys and a heavy metal blast from Todd Rundgren .

T15007 is a 59MB 128k mp3 1:04:28 in length made loud to be played loud!

*I mentioned that Moanin' At Midnight was the second Howlin' Wolf album and I wanted to both clarify and explain the chain of events. In fact, the above mentioned 1959 release was his first official full length which was recorded for Chess Records. However, the Crown Records album Howlin' Wolf Sings The Blues contains sides cut for Modern and RPM in the early Fifties and although not released until 1962 it is considered by many to be his first due to it's content. Confusingly, the self titled album Howlin' Wolf, assumed by many to be his first was the second on Chess also released in 1962. Therefore, it would be his third for the sake of this conversation. What?
