Description

The Transmitters were a British alternative rock band active during
the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s. Mixing elements of punk, jazz
and psychedelia, the band were critical favourites throughout their
lifetime and played support slots for a wide variety of underground and
mainstream bands, although this did not translate into substantial
commercial success.The Transmitters are also notable for
featuring future members of Loop Guru and Transglobal Underground and
for sharing two members with cult pop band Furniture, as well as a guest
stint by Glaxo Babies vocalist Rob Chapman. Their sound was compared to
(among others) The Fall, XTC, Gang Of Four, This Heat and Magazine.
