Boomkat Product Review:
During Wire's first period of activity in the late seventies, their brief, brittle compositions, artfully oblique lyrics and cerebral yet confrontational approach - entire sets of unreleased songs, audience interaction limited to "we don't play requests" - saw them cast outside the new orthodoxy of post punk and new wave, playing for a dedicated cult audience and releasing 3 seminal albums that have had immesurably more acclaim attached to them retrospectively than was ever voiced at the time.
In those dark days of rock tv being limited to the last slot before closedown once a week if you were lucky, Wire never had a look in, and aside from the odd 3 minute mime-along or micro-interview, broadcast quality footage of the band is limited to this hour long studio performance from february 1979 for german show "rockpalast". Luckily, that night they were at their sharpest, playing the set they were taking on tour in the period between 'chairs missing' and '154', and now after much wrangling this often-bootlegged recording is officially available, in video digitally cloned from the broadcast master, augmented by fully remastered audio.
