The Transmission

Check out this Lafayette band called the Transmission. I heard about them a while ago from Schickenbutt. They sound kind of like Brainiac. Highest quarity.

There are more flyers scanned under the flyers link. Does anyone have any from Metropolis? All the ones I have are mostly from the Bayou, the Wall, the Pussycat, and the Rinky Dink. I'm missing a key time period. As far as the places where the shows were, does this sound about right:
Before 1990: Haricot's, Shriner Hall, wherever
1992: Bluebird
1992-93: The Bayou
1993-94: The Wall
1994-9?: Metropolis
1999: The Pussycat
2000-0?: The Rinky Dink
If that's about right, what was going on in 91? Were there no shows that year? Also, I'm not sure when Metropolis bit it. I did find this account from a 1994 Planet Shock tour log about a Metropolis show that is kind of interesting reading.

Also, is Dave "Bootleggin" Hubbell in jail yet?

The Transmission, I'd say they sound more like Trans Am (at least on Binary Baby), but what the hell do I know? SWANK by all ways and means!

I have a few old flyers(OTIS)that are on my USA hard-drive (haven't hooked it up in the UK yet), but when I do, I'll flow them up-stream to ya!

Dave Hubble and Ronnie Stevens should have been in prison yonks ago! A couple of paedophiles luring the unsuspecting youth of Lafatit, via punk music. Queer bait mofos!

Old flyers are definitely cool. Anything old and Lafayette or nearby related is what we're pretty much going for.

I don't know how Hubble remains a free man. He's certainly been busted enough. I heard that he rolled over on somebody to get himself off. I can't say that for sure though. Maybe it's just his lucky mullet.
