Editorial Reviews

Review

Static Transmission is a tuneful, intelligent collision of post-punk fury, stylishly measured balladry and mature rock hook-smithing. --Chicago Tribune

Product Description

Returning to Tucson, Arizona with Craig Schumacher (Giant Sand, Calexico), Steve's created a truly different and startling piece of work from his previous records. His band, the Miracle 3, trained and prepped after playing over 100 wild shows, is augmented here by keyboardist Chris Cacavas (Green on Red, Giant Sand), and back for a return bout - 12 rounds of heavyweight guitar rock!

Steve's last album, Here Come The Miracles, was a massive, shifting behemoth of fuzzed-up grooves and scorching riffs and was quite rightly regarded as his best ever. Static Transmission is even better - a Sticky Fingers to Miracles' Exile on Main Street (except Steve's done it the right way round).

Comes with limited edition extra CD of more recordings & out-takes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can I give 7 stars? August 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Nobody seems to know him, but if the world was a just place, Steve Wynn would be the Superstar and all the Justin Timberlakes of the world would earn their money at a MacDonalds counter.
Alas, the world is not a just place and so the Einstein of music has to wait in line behind the spelling bee champions ...
Powerful, mighty, fun, different - this is what this CD is. Simply the best music around these days. And "Amphetamine" is the song to let your Mustang rip through a starless night on a deserted highway in the Arizonian desert. Magical and dangerous this is - so if you are brave enough to leave the hype behind you, a new world lays before you which will accept no surrender.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing short of amazing May 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I gave this to a friend who loves music, has for forty years, rides all the new waves, etc. Vaguely heard of Dream Syndicate from years past.
He won't stop talking about this album. Slow, beautiful song to opens things, then searing guitars, brilliant song writing, reverb reminded him of Monster REM, blah blah.

Steve Wynn does this to anyone not familiar with his stuff.

What I like about Mr. Wynn is the fact that he isn't confined to anything. If he wants to write a surfer song, a ballad, a folk tune, he just cranks it out and makes it art and brilliant and beautiful.

There is a confidence in his music that belies the fact that he has pretty much stayed under the radar.

This is as good an album as there has ever been. From the quiet opening, to the hard-driving classic song Amphetamine, all the way to the end A Fond Farewell, this exudes classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great one July 4, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I think the "Sticky Fingers/Exile on Main St." analogy not bad!
This one has a 'brighter' patina in a way than'Here Come the Miracles," but no less compelling. In fact, in some ways I've grown to like it more. A bit of soul drifts in & some brighter
ideas-- but there's still that 'noir' "Day of the Locust" LA not far underneath (even if he lives in Tucson!). Wynn & the Miracle 3 surely one of the best groups now using 'layering' of guitars & spacious, yet still rock, sound. Only Chuck Prophet in the same universe IMO. Great album!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic! July 17, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the best CD I've picked up so far this year. Not a bad track on the entire album and the bonus CD is great, too! "Amphetamine" may be the best driving song ever!
