    A piece on reformed bands following Stone Roses news this week made a passing compliment to Wire

    "recent years have seen a series of enjoyable returns: Blur, Pulp, Suede, Pavement, Pixies. Only a few, including Take That and forward-thinking post-punks Wire, have stayed together to write a creatively satisfying second act"

    Crikey...the guys will be mainstream soon yet being listed against such company.

    Never thought I''d see the two bands in the same sentence. Perversely I like it! :)

    So Bruce Gilbert is the Robbie Williams of Wire!

    Interesting comparison but yes interesting to note that when people look back at the 00s..the era of comebacks, how few of those bands actually came up with anything new. I'd add My Bloody Valentine to that list...the live shows were like the band had been reanimated having been fossilised in amber for 20 years..but there was nothing new to say.

    And the drummer sounded like he was hitting an upside down plastic bucket with a large wooden spoon. Still it was nice that the Wire posse to met up before the show!

    The Nightingales' 21st century career is every bit as good as their 1980s output. Though three-fifths of the current band had not been born while v1 was doing the rounds...

    Mission of Burma made two excellent c21 albums, admittedly to the same template as their earlier work, with added heaviosity.

    New Magazine album is an honourable effort, and certainly better than the last one they put out!
