Mod-A-Day: Tranzmitors

Out of Vancouver BC comes The Tranzmitors, dressed like Mods and sounding like power poppin', new wavin' punks of 1982. A potent combination to be sure. Their debut release on Deranged Records was so good that the new wave label of the 80s, Stiff, resurected itself just to release the disk in Europe. Along with The Briefs and The Cute Lepers, The Tranzmitors are one of the best bands that hearken back to that original punk sound. The song here, "Danicn' In The Front Row" is catchy, so much so you'll find yourself playing it again and again. And again. And probably again after that.
