WIRE’s first three albums need no introduction. They are the three classic albums on which Wire’s reputation is based. Moreover, they are the recordings that minted the post-punk form. This was adopted by other bands, but Wire were there first. These are the definitive re-releases. Each album is presented as an 80-page hardback book—the size of a 7-inch, but obviously much thicker. After a special introduction by JON SAVAGE, GRAHAM DUFF provides insight into each track. These texts include recording details, brand-new interviews with band members, and lyrics. The original album is presented on its own CD, accompanied by discs that feature relevant extra tracks: singles; B-sides; demos; and many previously unreleased songs. All audio has been painstakingly remastered (or, in some cases, mastered for the first time). This stunning set of presentations also includes a range of images from the archive of ANNETTE GREEN. Wire’s official photographer during this period, Green also shot the covers for Pink Flag and Chairs Missing. Promotional and informal imagery—in colour and black and white—is featured throughout the books. Most of the photographs have not been seen for 40 years—and many have never been published anywhere before. Please note: although the three original albums remain available through digital stores and streaming services, the extra tracks from the special editions will not be released digitally.
