Githead in Session

From RNZ Music, 5:00 pm on 28 March 2008

One of the most interesting UK bands from the punk/post-punk period was Wire, with their sharp, smart, sarcastic take on the times. They continue to make influential music. Wire vocalist, guitarist and co-writer Colin Newman also helms 'Githead', a band which includes his wife Malka Spigel and sound explorer Robin Rimbald a.k.a. Scanner. Hwere they are recorded in Newman's Swim Studio (UK) in 2007. The songs are: My LCA, Craft Is Dead, Profile, Option Paralysis.
