WIRE

154 (LP)

Fan Club - 13 €

If Chairs Missing is the transition album from punk to post-punk, then '154' is definitely of the latter genre. Synth moves to the forefront on this 1979 third album from Wire along with melodies that help humanize the electronic textures. Named for the number of gigs they had played to that point, 154 shows how far this band had come in three years.
