Polyvinyl Craftsmen Transmission 35 - Best of 2011

In our second podcast of the festive season we chose some of our favourite tunes we've played in this year's transmissions, invited a few friends along to pick some songs too and all drank far too much. The results are a great batch of songs and some pretty sloppy mic work! It was great fun to make and we only actually remember a lot of it after having listened back with sober heads. Thanks to everyone who came along and joined in the festivities. Download one for yourself here.
