Pink Flag’s influence can’t be underestimated. Guided By Voices took cues from its 1+ minute song lengths, R.E.M. were never shy of citing Wire’s influence, the Hardcore movement owe them a royalty check or two, and brit rockers Elastica shot to fame with a riff shamelessly ripped off Three Girl Rhumba.  Despite their artistic, deconstructionist pretensions, Wire knew the value of “it’s got a good beat and you can dance to it”. While pummeling us with songs are undeniably filled with anger and outrage - frenetically concerned with the plight of humanity - there’s far more compassion than nihilism at work here.

Heavyweight vinyl produced by Cargo Records. 2018 remaster.
