Since they're playing tomorrow at the Coachella Festival outside of Palm Springs, I thought it would a perfect opportunity to put some Wire on the Roundtable tonight.
As one of the pivotal bands of the Punk era, Wire have enjoyed a strong and lasting following for over 30 years. Through breakups and reforming, Wire have maintained their creative edge, and continue to turn out great songs.
Tonight it's a track off their 2008 album Object 47. Classic in the tradition of the milestone Wire 182 album in the early 80's, they've lost none of their edge. One Of Us is vintage Wire, while at the same time breaking new ground. A great band that, if you're lucky enough to be out at Coachella this weekend, you get a chance to see. Also, check out their website for other gigs they're playing in the States this month.
But for now here's a somewhat pale substitute for the real thing. Sometimes you just have to take it where you can get it.
