Wire - Nocturnal Koreans Album Review
Night time’s the right time for the post-punk legends’ extra bits.
Regenerating like a post-punk Doctor Who, the fourth-phase Wire have found themselves so prolific lately that 2015’s self-titled release yielded eight rubies-in-the-dust, rounded-up here.
The sleeve art is, er, minimal, so it’s down to the music to prove itself – and thankfully it does just that.
Without the polish of favoured studio Rockfield, the ethos behind the EP was “any trickery is fair game, if it makes
it sound better”.
