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.?!
