The Transmissionary Six
The songwriting team of Terri Moeller and Paul Austin, the former a longtime drummer of The Walkabouts, the latter a founding member of the Willard Grant Conspiracy and guitarist for The Walkabouts during the Travels In the Dustland period. Between 2002 and 2013 the band - lead vocalist Moeller and guitarist Austin, augmented by a rotating cast of supporting musicians (with multi-instrumentalist Jon Hyde being one of the constants) - released six albums, appeared on numerous compilations, and toured worldwide several times. The group's output is neatly summed up in a best-of release, "Songs 2002-2012." The Transmissionary Six still play locally on occasion in their hometown of Seattle, for the most part on an impromptu and low-key basis.
