Line Up 2011


Wire’s influence is massive with The Cure, R.E.M. and Manic Street Preachers being amongst their admirers. They formed in 1976 as a classic punk band and one year later released their debut album, Pink Flag. With their follow-ups, Chairs Missing and 154, Wire, however, developed their own distinct sound, a cross-breed between art rock, post-punk and experimental. After going on hiatus three times, Wire have been reunited since 2006. With Red Barked Tree, the trio, comprised of Colin Newman, Graham Lewis and Robert Grey, released their twelfth album this year.
