Ultimate Transmissions was envisaged as our label for top quality productions on CD and LP. We had high hopes that we would sell loads, and get them distributed widely. But that never actually happened, neither did the LP releases that we planned. We would have loved to have been able to issue all our releases as proper CDs on the Ultimate Transmissions label. But, the reality is that, as our own music is so seemingly uncommercial / uncategorisable, we've never been able to get any serious distribution at all. In fact we've only ever sold enough to break-even, if that. Yes, even with The Newt Hounds project, which we envisaged Nurse With Wound fans lapping-up, sales haven't been huge. So, it's really great that CD-Rs came along as an affordable viable alternative!

Besides the Cosmic Egg label, where the brand also appears, there may be more Ultimate Transmissions releases in the future should we ever get the license for something that needs a professional CD pressing. But, as it stands currently, the quality of the above 8 releases is very high, and all worthy of the collections of adventurous music enthusiasts!
