An interesting take on his early 80's solo career:

Really liking the most 2 recent Wire albums these days;

'Nocturnal Koreans' (2016) and Wire 'S/t' (2015)

Both albums seem to continue on that Eno-esque sound they got on '154'. I think they're gotten into my top 10 bands of all time.

I like Colin's "A-Z' album too but the song titles escape me and I think they might as well just be Wire songs.

I didn't even know that this was a thing. Looks like a 2011 release that I never knew about. Have to check it out. I know there's a lot of early career live recordings around now. It's gotten beyond the point where I can identify which songs are on which albums. They are officially into Guided by Voices territory. And seeing them live without knowing a semi accurate setlist ahead of time annoys the shit out of me as I've said in the past.

I saw the Red Bark Tree tour show. It was great. They played exactly two songs I knew and, still, I loved it.
