Transmissions :: Wire - Two Minutes
We are in full on vacation mode this week and preparing to depart for the snow covered mountians. But we just stumbled onto this new Wire track, that was apparently released as an album tease a couple of weeks ago, so we had to find a minute or two to write. Post-punk architects and creators of that genres defining release, Wire will release Red Barked Tree on January 11 on the bands Pink Flag imprint. The band has been paired down to their core line up of Colin Newman, Graham Lewis, and Robert Grey for the ever shifting ground of another art punk manifesto. This band never seems to stay in one sonic landscape for very long. Two minutes is the track featured above and as the title suggests, is two minutes of sledgehammer shouts and buzz saw punk.
Pre-order Red Barked Tree ahead of it's release and receive The Strays EP via Pink Flag.
Wire are scheduled to play The Middle East on April 3rd, it kind of goes without saying but I'll say it anyway, you should plan accordingly and BE THERE.
