Pink Flag

Harvest 11757

November 1977

Produced by Mike Thorne

**** recommended

Tons of bands in the late 70s took some cues from punk, but most were limp chicken-rock new wave without the punch or power and/or looking back to the 60s for inspiration, but Wire avoided both of those trappings and without the snot and razor-blades of punk, still stomped the past like it was an old beer can, kicked it off in a flash and jumped forward with both feet. 76 more words
