Art-Rock Band Wire's First Incarnation

The British band Wire is something of an oddity — a highly influential band hardly known in its home country, and one that has broken up twice, only to come back each time as something totally different.

Three albums by this '70s art-rock band have been reissued and are now available: Pink Flag, Chairs Missing and 154.
