    Hi There,

    I'm new here. I am a acetate collector and i have in my collection an metal acetate from wire with 4 songs that i never find on any album or single or compilations or live albums. The 4 songs are:

    -Lucille
    -Mississippi queen
    -Listen to the music
    -Chained

    There is no year on the acetate. Can someone here help me to find out about the songs? Unreleased?
    Thanks,
    Stefaan.

    Bizarre!
    Have you listened to the record, does it sound anything like Wire?!

    The song titles don't sound like the sort of thing Wire would come up with, unless this is some as yet unreleased EP of cover versions
    Mississippi Queen was a song by the 'Nantucket Sleighride' hitmakers Mountain.

    I have not listended for the moment to the songs because the acetate is very dirty, it needs a good cleaning!
    I cleaned up today and let you know.
    Is there another band with the same name Wire?

    The sleeve is blank and autographed by 3, i don't think this are the signatures of Wire. Still a strange case!

    Can't imagine any of the band doing the 'circle on the dot of the i' in Wire. :0

    A search on the only readable signature yields major clues...

    it is certainly not wire. I didn't know that there was another band with the same name.
    I send steven'tilly' thielges a mail for more information. I let you know.

    "No, not me, can you give me the link please?"

    I send the seller a mail for more information about this acetate.
    I bought it for $ 10 because i thought it was the band wire (12xu)

    There is if I recall correctly a Reggae band called Wire and a techno band calling itself Wire who occasionally crop up on iTunes or eMusic.

    No excuse for duplicating band names especially when they are only a Google search away but it happens a lot.
    There is a band in Manchester who call themselves Broadcast which is really annoying when you see a poster going up. There is also some Drum & Bass DJ who calls himself XTC.

    I'm thinking of forming a band called The Beatles.

    Hi Guys,

    I got some more info about this acetate.
    It is NOT the 'pink flag' wire!
    I send steve-tilly-thielges (one of the members of this wire acetate) a mail and this is his response.

    "Hello Stefaan,
    I am Steven "Tilly" Thielges. I was in a band called "Wire" in the 70's. We did a demo in Phoenix, AZ in
    1973 with the songs that you mentioned.
    The other two members in the band were Gary Rue and the late great Mike Burt.
    Vito (the man we signed this acetate for him) was our contact at United Artist studios in Phoenix where we did the demo. He was not the engineer for the studio; but I would say he was the A&R guy for the studio. His name is on the cover of whatever it was that we had signed. You can google Gary Rue who was lead guitar Wire and a few more bands that
    we started. We still perform together in a few projects. There are no more recordings of this particular band."


    Thank you guys for help me to find out of this acetate!

    Stefaan.

    Wonder if some poor soul buys the acetate for $500 on GEMM thinking it is the "Pink Flag" Wire??

    It's been 'deleted from the catalog '. hopefully they were informed that this is not 'the' Wire......

    Reminds me of the time I was hopping from foot to foot waiting for This Heat to play in Bristol... whoever they were, they changed their name a day or so before the gig. I went anyway, just to be on the safe side!
