Pf456 Redux
Pinkflag

The Wire album Send (PF6) originally released in 2003 was in fact a compilation of material contained on the releases Read & Burn 01 (PF4), Read & Burn 02 (PF5) and new tracks.?! The original plan had in fact been to simply compile the two planned Read & Burns but the unforeseen runaway success of Read & Burn 01 meant that in spite of the “band merch only” status of Read & Burn 02 there would be too much duplication if that plan was to go ahead, so an extra four tracks were made and some Read & Burn material was dropped in order to come up with an acceptable track list for Send. Of course these releases were all CDs—no one thought too much about vinyl at that point. However, there did need to be a vinyl release and as none of those tracks had ever been released on LP a creative solution was sought that would accommodate all of the tracks contained in those three releases (which unhelpfully equals 1.5 standard 12-inch vinyl records).?!

Pf456 Deluxe
Pinkflag

Following their 1990s hiatus, Wire reformed in 1999, and, after setting up their own Pinkflag imprint, between 2001–2003 released five distinct Wire items: Twelve Times You (PF3; 7-inch vinyl), Read & Burn 01 (PF4; CD EP), Read & Burn 02 (PF5; CD EP), Send (PF6; CD album) and PF456 Redux (PF456 Redux; 12-inch vinyl album.?! Following the two Read & Burn CD EPs, Wire released the full length album Send, combining some tracks from both Read & Burn EPs and four unreleased pieces.?! Since none of the tracks had previously been issued on vinyl, a creative solution was sought to include all of the tracks from Send and the two Read & Burn EPs.?! This was achieved by some quite brutal edits! Thus the title PF456 Redux is both catalog number and descriptor of the process.?! However, none of the tracks on PF4, PF5 and PF6 were ever put out on vinyl at full length—hence PF456 Deluxe, which includes everything from those three releases and Twelve Times You, for good measure.?!

Send Ultimate by Wire

Send Ultimate
Pinkflag

Send Ultimate is an archaeology of Wire in the studio between 2000 and 2003--a period during which the band worked on new music for the first time in a decade.?! This retooled edition of Send gives fresh insight into an exciting chapter for Wire, expanding the frame around the album and providing a larger context with rare and previously unheard material. The double-CD includes both sides of the 12 Times U vinyl-only collectors' item (the "12XU" remixes that catalyzed Wire's Send-era burst of creativity); unreleased curiosities such as "DJ Fuckoff," an exercise in hyperkinetic dancefloor lunacy; alternate versions of numbers originating in this period that subsequently appeared on 2007's Read & Burn 03; and the tracks from the first two (out-of-print) Read & Burn EPs that were omitted from the original Send..?!

Object 47
Pinkflag

In the five years since the May 2003 release of their last ful-length album, Send, Wire has expounded, reviewed, contracted, lain dormant, recovered, expanded, and shed an old skin and grown a new one.?! Wire is not the same as it was before--but then Wire is never the same as it was before...  Object 47 (the 47th object in their discography) is nonetheless only Wire's eleventh studio album.?! It is the second product of an arc of work that began in 2006 and has so far yielded the rather well-received EP Read And Burn 03 (from which no tracks appear on Object 47), and stands as a confident statement of where Wire is in 2008--as ever, looking forward!

Very few deliberate live recordings of Wire exist from the '70s.?! Board recordings and bootlegs aside, only three full live sets were put to tape in the early years with any aim other than archival use.?! The first, Live At The Roxy was recorded over two consecutive nights at London's Roxy Club in early April, 1977.?! The CBGB set was captured at the New York club's auxiliary theater in '78 for a radio broadcast.?! These recordings were released only once before, on the limited WIRE: 1977-1979 boxset, available mailorder-only from the group's website.?! A third performance, taped at WDR's Studios in Germany in '79 for the Rockpalast TV show, can be heard as part of the CD+DVD package On The Box: 1979.?!   The '77 shows presented on disc one feature the "classic" four-piece lineup making their debut in front of the world -- or at least the half dozen or so who turned up to see the opening act of a "Punk Festival" in a club that held a hundred people max.?!

*** Honed to a fine performance edge from their live European forays early in 2004, Wire present their fierce, high-velocity set based around their successful album Send, their first album in over a decade, which marked a return to their trademark gimlet, shivved, short sharp shocked writing style.?! Filmed by visual artist Tom Gidley in forensic detail, this document shows the band’s complete visceral set at The Triptych Festival in Glasgow, April 30, 2004.?! The footage deliberately excludes the usual rock music celebration of place and time and instead concentrates on contact with a band often misrepresented as enigmatic, cold and distant.?! Also included only on the DVD is a bonus selection of four pieces (captured by Observation Camera #1) of the second half of Wire’s April 2003 Flag:Burning performance/installation at the Only Connect Festival at The Barbican, London.?!

***Beyond a few seconds of snatched performance, a micro-interview on Tony Wilson's precursor to So It Goes, and a couple of mime-alongs on Belgian TV, there is no footage of Wire from the '70s beyond one item.?! Luckily it has been preserved.?! British viewers never got to see a live performance of Wire on their tellies, but Alan Bangs, who had the late night show on British Forces radio in Germany, crossed over to German-speaking media and by early 1979 was a presenter on RockPalast, an hour-long studio concert slot on WDR, already established as German's most important "serious" rock music show.?! Wire were old sparring partners of Bangs, appearing on his radio show every time they were anywhere near Cologne.  Although 15th generation VHS copies of the screened parts of this performance have been making the rounds for many years, this DVD is the first time that the complete performance and the never-screened interview have been brought together.?!

***The number of groups surviving punk's first blast still able to ply their trade with heads aloft and consciences clear can be counted on the fingers of one hand, with three digits to spare.?! WIRE is one of them.?! Send is their first full length album of new music in over a decade, and contains eleven examples of their most caustic and brutally compelling output in twice that time. 2002 saw the four original members return to the shot-blasted immediacy and stylistic minimalism of their very first material with the release of the six-track Read & Burn Ø1 primer, a critically lauded set received with many effusive verdicts that continues to sell strongly.?! Roof-raising tours of the UK, Europe and the USA have won over a whole new audience, culminating in a series of strong showings in the end-of-year lists—a Top 25 record on CMJ radio chart; appearances in Mojo's 2002 Top 40, John Peel's Festive 50, The Wire, the L.A.?!
