Where do I go first? Been meaning to listen to them for ages.
Wire are one of those bands where you need to understand where they started out to appreciate where they ended up
(ps, Send, bye)
and listen in that order.
In order. I don't like 154 that much though. Their latest LP Red Barked Tree is excellent as well.
But there are actually two really good Wire compilations - On Returning (for the early stuff) and The A List (for the later stuff). You could get both of them for a tenner on Amazon and go on to buy the original albums if you liked them.
Not even kidding!
For 80's Wire. Their latest album wasn't too bad but I enjoyed Object 47 a lot more.
Chairs Missing is their finest.
Have any of you cats heard the Vien EP? Fuck. Me. Manscape's got an absolutely incredible closing track that beats their entire 80's output on its own, too.
And 99.9 is just the most awesome thing ever.
