Okay, I've sort of been out of the Wire loop lately, because the loop seemed to have more or less closed...but my friend Miles, who manages the Wire mailing list, let me know that rumors of their demise were premature.
But I had still missed out that Wire have a new EP out. Haven't heard it, ordered it about two seconds after I heard it existed - but 'ere it is again, Wire - with Read & Burn 3. Another EP, this time (they say) no tracks to be repeated on the forthcoming album-at-work (more happy!).
Plus: Wire's official band website, Pinkflag.com, has some mp3s for download, including two that are unavailable generally.
