Wire: News on the Wire
Richard Grabel, New York Rocker, July 1978
WIRE. THE name denotes something tight, something along which electricity buzzes and communication passes. In an English music scene full of brash, jokey band names (Sex Pistols, Buzzcocks) Wire chose a thoughtful, conceptual name, an arty name, if you will. Wire is an arty band, but in the best sense of the word, of rock and roll to be used as art is used, to explore.
