    Who knows which album the "dancey" version is on? There's an alternate version with cowbells and a heavy dance beat.

    Kind of like a mix of 80s New Order and Echo & the Bunnymen. Pretty rad. Another song to use as proof that the 80s had plenty of great music.

    @dakotaboo: I agree. This song is a slice of brilliance. The rest of their recent works leaves me cold, alas. But I don't mind, after 154, Pink Flag and Chairs Missing there really isn't anything else to say.

    This is the first Wire track not from the first 3 albums that I've heard on lastfm so far. In isolation it sounds pretty good but I found some of the later albums a bit lacklustre. Maybe it's time to re-listen ... think I still have this on vinyl somewhere.

    Wire's 2nd coming. I still prefer their first time around. Watch out for a new (mini) album Read & Burn 3. Nr. 1 and 2 were great.
