Wire- 1976 Demo

Who knew that Wire was once such a full-throttle punk band? Here, they're taking cues from Johnny Thunders, The Stooges and Sabbath, but upping the pace as that first wave of speed-fueled British Punk was wont to do. These guys sound like snot-nosed, shouting bastards, their vocals more akin to Dischord punk acts like Minor Threat or Government Issue than any other band I can think of from '76. Dudes are pissed. 12FU.

This sounds even earlier than the early tracks that appear on Behind the Curtain. Love it.

Thank you for this, Nicholab. Didn't even suspect it existed, quite frankly.
