Chairs Missing by Wire

Wire's second album has now, belatedly, got the re-issue treatment. 'Chairs Missing' expanded the short, sharp art-rock of their debut 'Pink Flag' into something more rounded and experimental, particularly in terms of their song structure. The CD editions come with bonus discs of so many demos that you won't know what to do with them.

9/10 Penrith Steve 13th February 2015

Wire's second album, "Chair's Missing" marked a progression in their sound from their brilliant debut, "Pink Flag". Their debut was full of shorter, intelligent punk songs, however, on the equally brilliant follow-up, they found room for more experimentation and a more angular art-rock sound. Songs like "Practice Makes Perfect" and "French Film Blurred" are great examples of that sound. Wire's best song, "Outdoor Miner" is on here - a sublime melody and fairly standard verse-chorus-verse structure that was not the norm for Wire, but they did it so well. There was a bit of controversy in the Britpop era as Blur's "Girls And Boys" was said to have plagiarised Wire's "I am The Fly". A few Britpop bands plundered Wire's back catalogue and basically stole from them, but none of them did it like the genuine article, so buy this.
