03.06.07: Tribute to WIRE
"Wire emerged out of the British punk explosion but, from the outset, maintained a distance from that scene and resisted easy categorization. While punk rapidly became a caricature of itself, Wire's musical identity -- focused on experimentation and process -- was constantly metamorphosing." -Wilson Neate (www.allmusic.com)
This metamorphosis continued and was displayed in the even more experimental nature of the Wire members' solo and side-project releases and in the band's mid '80s and early 2000s reunions. Tonight we'll be traversing across the 30 year output of WIRE.
