Polyvinyl Craftsmen Transmission 49 Redux


We're still on our extended Easter holiday, fannying about in the sun on the Caribbean Island we bought with the cash we make on the sale of PVC branded slipmats and tea towels. Sloth, gluttony and sunburn has stopped us recording again this week, so here's another oldie from the vault. This time we've dredged up Transmission 49 from April 2012.
