Having been cited as a strong influence by yet another generation of bands, including Parquet Courts and Savages Wire’s latest album, ‘Silver/Lead’, a set of songs which encompasses the optimistic dazzle of ‘Diamonds In Cups’, the menacing widescreen grandeur of ‘Playing Harp For The Fishes’ and the breakneck paced guitar pop of ‘Short Elevated Period’.
Although their 15th studio album is being released on the 40th anniversary of Wire’s debut, ‘Silver/Lead’
has nothing to do with the past and everything to do with the future.
