    Follow the typical format of a typical Wire setlist (50% new material and 50% older selections) and construct your ideal Wire setlist. Thought it would be a fun exercise. For me it would be:

    1- Spent
    2- Stealth of A Stork
    3- Blogging Like Jesus
    4- I Should Have Known Better
    5- Magic Bullet
    6- Adore Your Island
    7- Silk Skin Paws
    8- Outdoor Miner
    9- Smash
    10- Eels Sang
    11- A Question of Degree
    12- B&W Silence
    13- German Shepards
    14- Start To Move
    15- Brazil
    16- Pink Flag


    17- Indirect Enquiries

    Tortoised has it almost right but a slightly longer set....
    90 mins (minimum), with nowt from RBT or CBU, except Doubles & Trebles!
    If Wire were to subvert the idea of setlists I would suggest this

    Main set:

    1 - Mary Is A Dyke (under 3 minutes)


    2 - Drill (1 hour plus)

    As to a standard song set - I'll get back to you on that one.....
    Not an ideal set, but following the Xaviers encore, I would quite like to see a set with Xaviers adding to the melee.
    Drill, 23 Years too Late, Spent, New Song, Boiling Boy, Magic Bullet, New Song, Advantage in hour total, noise and drone.
    ENCORE, a couple of poppier tracks, Doubles and Trebles, maybe, Please take.
    ENCORE 2. Return of the Drone. 10 minutes of mayhem with the drummers leading the way, maybe a cut up of various tracks coming and going around a driving throb.

    Hopefully it is Paris, as I shall be there on Sunday.

    There are a couple of gigs that I would find challenging.1231742's ideal night puts him at the radical wing of the Wire obsessives.
    An evening with Fergus looks more enticing.
    23 Years too Late is a regular on the lists. A highlight in the current set.
