Wire - took Punk to new levels.


Punk/Post-Punk/Experimental icons Wire tonight. From a series of sessions they recorded at The BBC for the John Peel Program on January 18, 1978.

One of the truly inventive and atmospheric bands to come out of the 70's, they've continued and have lost none of their edge.

Tonight it's looking back on the early days and here's what's on the player:

1. Practice Makes Perfect
2. I Am The Fly
3. Culture Vultures.
4. 106 Beats That

I have a hard time imagining this was recorded 34 years ago.
