Ha, yes. Odd call.

Brilliant band. Those first three albums (Pink Flag, Chairs Missing, 154) are widely regarded as punk/post-punk classics these days, and rightly so. Massively influential albums. They were a band that was already expanding the horizons of UK punk while it was still firmly in the throes of 'ground zero'.

And it sure as hell didn't end there - the amount of high quality music they've released then over the course of their 40-plus year career (with the odd semi-hiatus chucked in) is just staggering. They're a band that continue to reinvent themselves and stay fresh while still holding true to their original sonic framework.

Still going strong, too. Released yet another very cool album just last month in fact.




Decent little vid for the Wire uninitiated.....

I think this suits that thread well

Great band.

Still can't believe that there's some folks out there that haven't twigged to who you are yet.

Anyway, yes, so many apt/worthy tributes to the Random Thoughts thread out there.

A few more to add to the list.....

....and so on.
