Wire – “154” LP
An album that is named according to the number of gigs the band had played at the time of its release. Everyone likes Wire, yeah? Anyone who doesn’t simply hasn’t got round to listening to them yet. 154 is the third of their albums, released in 1979 – further sculpting their post-punk creation by broadening their minimalist sound with a more prominent use of guitar effects, synthesizers and electronics. Visionary pioneers, timelessly captivating.
Repressed by the band, staying true to the original with the same covers and inner sleeve.
