Wire are the undisputed originators of experimental postrock. Since their formation in London in 1976, Wire have maintained and advanced a musical project which treats the creative potential of a rock band as a fluid, amorphous medium. As removed from self-conscious intellectualism as they are from the inherent conservatism of much rock music, Wire employ their unique, endlessly restless and risk-taking creativity to question every aspect of songwriting, recording and performance. They delight and disturb in equal measure, troubleshooting the circuitry of perfect pop, or patrolling the limits of focused experimentalism.
Having virtually drawn the map of modern guitar effects, they are cited as heroes by such diverse acts as Fugazi, My Bloody Valentine, Black Flag, Guided By Voices, and Blur.
