LostFuture Sound of London

FSOL jumping a tad belatedly on the haunty bandwagon?

I mean this description off of Discogs is very Mordant Dead Air, don't you think?

Blackhill Transmitter

Real Name:
Brian Dougans & Gary Cobain
The once active transmitter / receiver now lies silent albeit for the faint crackling and buzzing as if ghosts from the past still wish to be heard...

Then there's the analogue-is-over resonance of the name:

The Black Hill transmitting station is a facility for FM and TV broadcasting at Black Hill (grid reference NS828647), on Duntilland Road, SalsburghNorth Lanarkshire,Scotland which is near the town of Airdrie.... The present mast is the second to have been built at the site. The first, built in 1957 brought the Independent Television service to Central Scotland and opened for service on 31 August 1957.,,,,  In June 2011, Black Hill became the final transmitter in Scotland to switch off analogue television. 

Then there's the artwork
