Radio Zero: Wire, The Black Sessions

Wire, The Black Sessions (Pink Flag, 2012)—

In the first wave of UK punk, Wire simultaneously invented post-punk and hardcore on the album this label is named after. . . I was told their recent work returned to that sound, and this hard-hitting live album confirms it. . . This is Wire at their most primal—songs that twist to the left, then slam back on track, head toward you and explode. . . Try 3, 10.
