Wire “Nocturnal Koreans” Vinyl LP 2016 NEW Record

Label: Pink Flag
Release Date: 5/13/2016
Brand new, sealed vinyl LP pressing. This new record was in fact hatched during the same sessions as Wire, and the two albums are very much like the band’s 1977 and ’78 albums in the way they offer different sides of the band. Pink Flag and Wire are direct and powerful, made by a band playing together with very little studio trickery. The songs on Nocturnal Koreans have a different attitude – an anything goes attitude – that shows the band using the studio in any way it can imagine to create a sound. What I hear is closer to the sound from that legendary Chairs Missing record: Mystery reigns. Imagery melds with sound and texture. Despite the link to the past, this record is of the here and now.
