WIRE 1970's re-releases - More information @wirehq

Nine Sevens – in stock now!



Yes, we now have strictly limited stock of Nine SevensPre-order NOW (available from 5 May)
Housed in a sturdy box, with a beautiful cover concept by Bruce Gilbert, Nine Sevens is a unique set of nine 7-inch records that were recorded between 1977 and 1980. This limited edition was made for Record Store Day, but now that has passed we can sell remaining available copies via mail order.

The box-set includes the six ground-breaking Wire singles that were originally released on the Harvest label, one released on Rough Trade, and one single recorded in 1980 that was never released on 7-inch. The set also includes the rare EP given away with the first pressings of 154. Everything is freshly remastered from the original archive analogue sources, and comes packaged in the original picture sleeve designs.

The singles are being individually released digitally throughout the year (click Outdoor Miner below to buy) but will not be compiled on a singles or ‘greatest hits’ album.

Class ic Wire album T-shirts

As regular newsletter subscribers will know, we’ve been working behind the scenes to produce the ultimate pieces of 1970s Wire merchandising: classic album T-shirts. These are produced using a very new technology that enables full-colour images to be printed directly onto cotton T-shirts of any colour. The image is not ‘stuck on’ – it feels like any other printed T-shirt and is also completely washable. The catch is because this is a new technology, the cost to make them is hugely more than regular T-shirts, and we can’t currently retail them at less than £29.99.
We have produced a range of sizes all on black T-shirts. The good side of the production process is that because these are hand-produced in small runs in the UK, we can easily re-stock should any size or design prove popular.
Pre-order here (available from 5 May)

Special Editions launch event at Rough Trade East

Wire and the group of individuals who worked on creating t he Speci al Editions have teamed up with Rough Trade East to create a launch event. This will take place at the Brick Lane store in London on 19 May 2018 (the day after the Special Editions are released).

Billed as ‘on stage in conversation’, the event will feature Graham Duff (writer), Jon Savage (writer), Jon Wozencroft (designer), Graham Lewis, Robert Grey and Colin Newman (of Wire), and Bruce Gilbert (formerly of Wire). Doors are at 5:30, and the event starts at 6:30.

What you need to know… 
A. This is a chat – not a gig!
B. We have pushed Rough Trade to make this an open event. They previously wanted to issue tickets only to those who had pre-ordered from their store. Obviously, that would be deeply unfair to people who have pre-ordered from our own mail order. However, if you plan to attend and have not pre-ordered, there will be plenty to buy (at the same price as on our store).
C. If you don’t know Rough Trade East, it’s a big shop – but still a shop. Capacity is around 150 so our advice is to get there early!
D. You are welcome to bring your copies in for signing.

Young Fathers released their third album Cocoa Sugar, via Ninja Tune on March 9. The record—produced, written and recorded by the band throughout 2017—is Young Fathers’ biggest commercial and critical success to-date. Featuring the singles “In My View,” “Lord” and “Toy,” Cocoa Sugar builds on the widespread acclaim of their two previous full-length records: 2014’s Mercury Prize winning DEAD and 2015’s White Men Are Black Men Too.

Today, Young Fathers released the video for their latest single, “Toy.” The video sees the band reignite their creative relationship with renowned Stink Films director Salomon Ligthelm, who collaborated with the band on 2014’s “Mr Martyr.” Ligthelm approached the trio with the video concept after hearing the track. He states:

"The tone of the track is so visceral and abrasive, which I think marries the political subject matter perfectly. I honestly just really like the idea of seeing dictators behaving like spoilt little children - pissed with the world, because things aren't going their way. Looking at the political climate of our time, I'd say truth is certainly stranger than fiction.”

“Once it is done, it is yours," Young Fathers tell NPR Music. "We gave ‘Toy’ to Salomon who listened and saw dictators as children playing a game of ‘who has the most power. What do you see when you listen?”

WATCH THE “TOY” VIDEO VIA NPR MUSIC & YOUTUBE

Cocoa Sugar is available on CD, LP, limited LP and via all digital services. It features a striking visual aesthetic, with cover photography from Julia Noni and creative direction from Tom Hingston.

Meanwhile, Young Fathers—Alloysious Massaquoi, Graham ‘G’ Hastings and Kayus Bankole—will preform a run of North American shows this week. The dates include sold out headline shows in New York (May 1) and Los Angeles (May 2) before the band join LCD Soundsystem and the Yeah YeahYeahs at the Hollywood Bowl on May 4 and 5. They have also just announced an in-store at Amoeba Hollywood this Thursday, May 3. Young Fathers will support Massive Attack at the UK’s Eden Project on June 15 and 16 in addition to festival appearances throughout the summer.

Ahead of a rapidly selling out North American tour – and their first in eight years – Fever Ray has released a new remix EP for “Mustn’t Hurry.” The EP is a globe-hopping who’s who of cutting edge electronic artists including Malaysia-born, China-based DJ Tzusing, Stockholm’s Dinamarca and LAO, who is located in Mexico City. Also included is a remix by Tami T who collaborated with Fever Ray during the recording of Plunge, Fever Ray’s 2017 studio album. Listen to the “Mustn’t Hurry” remix EP here.

Regarding her remix, Tami T said, “I played around with manipulating the vocals and decided that the track should be in a much higher tempo and be dance-friendly! It’s a banger!!” Reflecting on his contribution, Dinamarca says, “the idea behind the remix was simple, I took all the parts that I loved from the original, arranged it and added my favorite drums.”

Fever Ray has compiled a playlist that features all available remixes from the Plunge campaign.Stream and follow to hear new remixes as they are released.

On Sunday, May 13, Fever Ray will join visual artist and musician Bunny Michael for a special talk ahead of Fever Ray’s performance that night at Brooklyn Hangar as part of Red Bull Music Festival. The talk, titled “Self Care and The Artist: A Talk on Compassionate Creative Practice with Fever Ray and Bunny Michael,” will discuss the intersectionality of creativity, social justice and spirituality. The chat will be followed by a short audience Q&A. Those planning to attend the talk must have a ticket for the Sunday concert.

Buzzy Lee's Debut EP "Facepaint," Produced by Nicolas Jaar, Out Today -- Watch "Facepaint" Video

FACEPAINT

THE DEBUT EP FROM BUZZY LEE, 
PRODUCED BY NICOLAS JAAR

OUT TODAY ON FUTURE CLASSIC


NYC EP RELEASE SHOW ANNOUNCED





Buzzy Lee, the dark pop project of performer, writer, and actress Sasha Spielberg, releases her debut EP Facepaint on Future Classic today. Produced by the acclaimed electronic artist Nicolas Jaar, Facepaint has earned early praise for its lush synth sounds and intimate lyricism. Today Buzzy Lee also shared the video for the EP's title track.

Facepaint's first single "Coolhand" has racked up over 550K streams and has been featured as KCRW's Today's Top Tune and KUTX's Song of the Day. Watch the "Coolhand" video here

Buzzy Lee will make her NYC live debut at Brooklyn's Park Church Co-Op on May 16. Tickets are available now

Last night, Buzzy Lee celebrated her EP release at an intimate release show at her late grandmother's restaurant the Milky Way in Hollywood:




PRAISE FOR BUZZY LEE:


"With a voice that can gracefully maneuver across octaves, the singer fills her measures with dramatic flourish that recalls British singer Kate Bush." - LA Times

"Jaar's smooth and simple arrangement casts his typical downtempo style in a poppier tone, an appropriate backing for Spielberg's perky and emotive vocals." - Stereogum

"'No Her'' is a dreamy, heartfelt ballad, with Jaar's dramatic, subtly sweeping production acting as a haunting backdrop for Spielberg's soul-baring expression of self-doubt." - Gorilla vs. Bear

"Facepaint is a blend of both of their personalities - Sasha's insecurities emoted through vulnerable, luscious vocals; Jaar's cool jazz and classical-influenced electronic beats and warm synths." - i-D

"The vibe is emotional DIY-electro meets Hollywood sheen, and it's glorious." - Paste

"An intimate exploration of Spielberg's anxieties and vulnerabilities via jazzy vocals and unobtrusive instrumentals." - W
