    Wire’s “I Am the Fly” and Joy Division’s "Unknown Pleasures":

    "So this is the so-called new stuff. It’s nothing I ain’t heard before. It sounds like an old blues jam that BB and Muddy would carry on backstage at the old amphitheatre in Chicago. The instruments may be different but the experiment’s the same."

    I would loved to have been a fly on the wall whilst that particular jam was in progress, well a fly with a musical ear and access to a time machine of course!

    Chuck Berry doing a few Wire covers..now thats an album i'd buy!

    Pretty funny stuff. I've never considered "I Am The Fly" to be one of the band's strongest moments (and I get the impression the band also agrees)
