WIRE - Chairs Missing LP

Add to Wishlist
Highly recommended.  

It has been a number of years since the first 3 Wire albums were readily available. The aim with these releases is to approximate the original statements as closely as possible, but with remastered audio. The vinyl releases have the same covers and inners as the originals (minus the Harvest logo). These versions should be considered Wire's classic 1970s albums, pure and undiluted.

1978's Chairs Missing represented perhaps the biggest conceptual leap made during this period of Wire and was widely misunderstood at the time yet it remains to the band and production crew, Wire's favourite 70's album. The clarity of vision of the band at the time has been rewarded with a large appreciation in it's standing in hindsight the album also having been awarded (alonside Pink Flag) the distinction of a 10.0 rating by Pitchfork Media amongst many other plaudits.

Chairs Missing has been influential on the British wave of the late 70's & early 80's, Britpop and 21st C art & post punk and provided Wire biggest "nearly hit" in "Outdoor Miner".
