  • Most under rated artist of the Eighties. Graham Lewis and John Fryer are a force to be reckoned with.
  • All is said on the 3 other posts.
  • Wire rules, He said. All those guys (men) are awesome. Hats down, thumbs up.
  • G. Lewis is amazing. Newman & Lewis, what a force behind the institution called WIRE!
  • God, this is some amazing and under-appreciated music.
