More About

Jon Parsons' Hammond organ is practically the sixth member of the Transmitters on the band's full-length debut — a burbling, rollicking presence on the bar-band dust-kicker "Supersonic Loveman" but a subtle background mood-setter on the Graham Parker-esque "You're Killing Me." The rest of the quintet's self-titled album, whose songs were penned by vocalist-guitarist Kip Loui, upholds the band's commitment to diversity. Expected bits of sturm-und-twang are joined by torchy ballads, Rolling Stones-swampy blues, merry jangle, riot-punk and Loui's always-expressive voice, vulnerable enough to ably croon but tough enough to conjure Joe Jackson at his youthful best.
