Wire fans buy this now!,
This review is from: Take Care (Audio CD)
I was a big Wire fan in the late 80's during their second musical phase (the albums on the Mute label like "The Ideal Copy" and "A Bell Is A Cup...") when they were very electronic and hypnotic, and this solo project from Wire's Graham Lewis dates from the same period. I wasn't massively keen on it at the time when I bought it on vinyl, but it grew on me over the years and when I saw it available on CD here I jumped at the chance to get it, and it was well worth it. A bit left-field, slightly odd angles in the music, but very stimulating music, and if you liked what Wire were doing at the time you won't be disappointed.
Best tracks are "Could You?" which is quite gentle and almost elegiac, and opener "ABC Dicks Love". An album with lots of interesting noises and bizarre titles, which also includes two tracks written for Michael Clarke (the trendy choreographer who used to dance with his bottom cut out of his tights). Nice.
