C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Wire

Don't Crash

I'm sure we've all woke up with a song stuck in our head and it stays there the rest of the day. A lot of times for me it's usually some cheesy AM radio gold but every once in awhile it is something a bit different. Today it was this song by Wire.

Originally released as a 7inch single in 1978, "Dot Dash" did not see a re-release until it appeared on the 1994 re-release of the band's debut album Pink Flag. When that record was remaster and reissued in 2006 the song was missing. The reason, according to the band, was that it didn't honor the "conceptual clarity of the original statements".
