Wire - One of the great bands.

Something a bit more recent in vintage. Wire recorded this past May 9th live in Paris by Radio France.

It's really good to hear this band still together and still performing. They were such a pivotal force in the initial Punk movement in the mid-70's and their growth into Experimental and Alternative just proves how versatile and far-reaching Wire actually are. That they haven't achieved massive commercial success is really a good thing since their music doesn't adhere to flights of fancy and gimmicks - that it is, indeed timeless.

For that reason they have been one of my favorite bands of the last forty years. Always a pleasure to visit and always an experience worth having.

No matter when.
