    German Shepards, The 15th, Map Ref, Advantage In Height? This is bloody excellent.
    Much as I love Two People In A room, I doubt any version is ever going to top the Chochrane version.
    As I said previously, this was the first time I attented a Wire concert. I remember an avalanche of good and unexpected songs, but I do not remember advantage in height very well.
    There were two setlists. The one I gave you was Colin's one. Graham had another... and they were a bit different (I took photos of Colin's one only)
    The new tracks? Well I cannot wait to have the last LP because they were all good.

    Just before the concert, I was saying to miss Jiphy, that German Shepards was connected to some memories I had of the Iron Curtain but that I was doubting they were to play this song. THEY made it!
    Thank you for the GOLDEN HELLO Wire.

    They did the same at cargo last year if I remember correctly.
    Wow. That is a dream setlist! Can't believe they've dusted off a gem like "German Shepards".

    I really hope the guys can come across the pond for another US tour. I caught 3 shows in a row during the fall 2008 run and had a blast!
    Thanks for posting. That's an amazing setlist. Kidney Bingos!
    I wonder if 'Please Take' is a version of 'Take it' from the First letter?

    Had a quick listen. Interesting to see so much new stuff in thereā€”it's like the Wire of the 1970s, trying out new stuff to see if it works.
    This is now up on Dimeadozen if you've got an account there
    "Please Take" = Graham Lewis classic.
    I really hope one of the new tracks is actually called 'a guy want "sex in the church"'

    Unfortunately it's just a heckle, though it has to be said, a very fine one. A French bloke shouts "I vant to 'ave sex in ze church!", to much bemusement from Colin & Graham.

    A few songs later, after 106 Beats That, Graham deadpans "that was a song about having sex in church"
