Dome
Dome 2

Editions Mego present a well-earned reissue of the second album by Dome. And what, precisely is Dome? Well, that would be Bruce Gilbert and Graham Lewis of Wire, spinning off on a (yet) more experimental direction, with focus on utilising the studio itself for maximum effect. Dome 2 is essential listening for Wire fans and for everyone else, especially with this fetching remaster by Russell Haswell.

Dome
Dome 1

The year was 1980, and with their band Wire in free-fall Bruce Gilbert and Graham Lewis figured that they could either sit around feeling sorry for themselves or get on with making music. They took the latter approach, and the next two years yielded four LPs of experimental work under the name Dome. Their debut Dome 1 set out the duo’s stall very well indeed - people who are interested in the post-post-punk investigations of This Heat will take a particular shine to this one. Now Dome 1 has been reissued by Editions Mego.

Cupol
Like This For Ages EP

Experimental synths, wailing vocals, hypnotic rhythms, hellish ambience.... all of this weirdness and more can be found on the vinyl remaster of Like This For Ages EP by Cupol, a unique British post-punk duo from the 80s. Every aspect of the music on this record is discordant, disturbing and wildly creative. Released as Vinyl 12" on the Dark Entries label. 

Bruce Gilbert
Ex Nihilo

Editions Mego mark their 250th release with a regular contributor to the label - ex-Wire / Dome member Bruce Gilbert. Ex Nihilo encapsulates his signature sonics - harsh, austere, sculptural aural brutalism, hacked into a variety of abstract and alien shapes. The fact that the album is mastered by mischievous extremist synth gremlin Russell Haswell and cut by the exacting Rashad Becker neatly indicates where it lies on the noise continuum.

Wire
Silver / Lead

The fifteenth Wire album, released in the year of their fortieth anniversary, finds the group still sounding spritely and fresh. Most importantly of all, Silver / Lead finds them still sounding highly creative! CD and LP versions available, plus a deluxe CD-in-80-page-book edition that features stacks of exclusive text and imagery. Out on the band’s Pink Flag imprint.
