    "Always ready with the ray of sunshine"

    I like this better than anything on the last three albums.Their punk side comes back, but with one of those classic Wire hooks.

    I have had a Wire day today, playing the first three and the most recent three in anticipation of this new album. They are as great now as they were at the start.

    Excellent news, and it sounds exactly like Wire!

    I must make an effort to get to the London gig this time, it’s been a while since I managed to see them, although I have kept apace with all releases, and they are consistently interesting.

    ^The Atlanta show will be my first legitimate chance to see them. I’m definitely not passing it up.

    Somehow, finding out that Robert Grey owns a farm (or at least drives a tractor on a farm ...) made my day.

    Slightly disappointed with the new album. It’s not bad, but it’s not grabbing me. Few chances taken, same vocal processing. It’s not bad, but it certainly gets lost in the shuffle of the other recent albums. That’s too bad considering how awesome the Fitted album is.

    Nevertheless, I am super excited to see them this weekend.

    There's a new Wire album (of sorts) out.

    Here are some details:
    WIRE have never been a band to rest on their laurels. Indeed, their forward facing aesthetic is matched only by their industriousness. A scant five months after the release of the widely acclaimed Mind Hive (“Sinewy, stripped-back, fearful — and beautiful” — The Guardian), Wire return with 10:20, a special release originally planned for the cancelled Record Store Day 2020.

    Wire are Colin Newman, Graham Lewis, Robert Grey and Matthew Simms, and together they have served up a collection that morphs from bright psychedelic pop to pummelling noise — with several detours along the way.

    10:20 also thrives on its own perverse logic. Herein are songs the band refers to as ‘strays’. These are recordings of pieces that couldn’t be accommodated on regular albums, as well as compositions that, following their original studio recording, evolved substantially through live performance, and so deserved a new life on record.

    So far, I'm enjoying this much more than Hive Mind which has never really clicked for me. I know most of these tunes are old (and, heck, half of them were recorded a decade ago), but there's definitely an energy to them that was lacking on the last album. (For what it's worth, I really love Silver/Lead.)

    A Warning from Wire:

    "You may have recently seen 10:20 for sale on Bandcamp. This was a scam page that was nothing to do with Wire, and is actually the second time this has happened on that site. At the time of writing, Wire does not work with Bandcamp, and so you will never find legit Wire releases (digital or otherwise) for sale there. For official digital releases, please buy direct from pinkflag.greedbag.com, or buy or stream from apple music, Spotify, itunes,Tidal, Deeze, Amazon play etc."

    I don't have 10:20 yet but I do have the Strays EP and, strangely, it's the least energetic number that has become one of my favorite post-80's Wire songs: the droning slow motion psych-out "He Knows."

    I was a little disappointed with the sound quality of 10:20...
