Wire's Read and Burn
- I love the Read and Burn EP and at the cost of giving apoplexy to fellow
Wire fans, I'd tell you that they just came out with another EP in this
series that's only available on their tour stops or at this website:
Listened to it a few times and not sure how I feel about it quite yet
though I don't think I'm gonna love it as much as Volume 1 of this series.
The show I saw them do in New York recently was the best I've seen from
them (comparing their last visit to NY where they didn't seem to have
their heart in it and a show they did here in the mid 80s just after the
Ideal Copy, ditto). My only complaint was that the set was really brief
this time: the whole thing lasted barely one hour, including two encores.

so that setlist could have 30 songs! The Grateful Dead they are not.
I'm looking forward to hearing the next EP, but then I like almost
everything Wire has ever put out. Except _Manscape_. I don't know what
they were thinking when they recorded that one.
