"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Avatar Wed. 4/3/13 7:02am John Allen:

What happens when you can play it all ...
It dictates what I play, when I play them, and how much time I can ...I wanted to play, I filled up all the empty space on my shelf with titles. well, you know
  Wed. 4/3/13 7:08am Movingchild:

That wasn't a direction, but an affirmation.You always play them all,as in all of the right ones.

On the topic of Wire, I recently saw a clip of them performing Drill on the Tonight Show in '87 with Suzanne Somers hosting. She attempts a brief exchange with Bruce at the end. A great performance under slightly surreal conditions.
