BBC 2013 [no label, 1CD]

Live on the Marc Riley Show, BBC 6 music, Salford, UK; September 16, 2013. Excellent BBC broadcast.

Pink Flag (1977), “perhaps the most original debut album to come out of the first wave of British punk”. - Allmusic

After releasing the acclaimed Pink Flag back in 1977, Wire have gone on to record 12 more studio albums, including Change Becomes Us released in 2013. The new album is a hybrid of material they wrote back in the early days and things they wrote more recently and was released on vinyl as part of Record Store Day. - BBC

Thanks to PontiacB who recorded and shared the tracks at Dime.

  3. Thanks for this Big O
    I was privileged to be working at MOMA Oxford when Graham Lewis, Bruce Gilbert (as Dome) and Professor Russell Mills did an installation piece there and under the direction of Deputy Director Marco Livingstone, we housed the Wire re-union gig of 1985 which was an astonishing evening and exists in my taped bootleg form only I think. I miss them and they were always a joy to be around and talk to about mutual interests and drink possibly rather too much Guinness

  4. Wire! Magnificent Big O, never expected to see them here! Loved for years. Saw them live, just a few years back - insanely loud, concise and magnificent. I can only echo eponymus comment.
