    So now we know that Flood :) was the 'secret' producer of Object47, cramped up over the desk at Swim studios, who else would we like to see producing a Wire release? If money or death was not an issue. Alternatively remixers or collaborators. Who and what would they bring to the mix? Have previous remixes worked?

    Wire, how about supplying the parts to a track like NIN have and let us have a go...

    Remix-wise, I'd love to see a few leftfield acts given a go, such as Vitalic. Production-wise, I've no idea. Thorne is the one people most talk about, but that could be a bit retro, and although Object 47 is perhaps a bit too smooth, I think Colin's largely done a good job with Wire production in the band's current incarnation.

    If I have any criticisms about CN's production on post-millennium Wire is that on "Send" there are times that you can actually
    hear the compressor pumping. Other than that, the brutal use of compression to boost levels is appropriate for the kind of material they're doing. I think RB3 is much much better. It's also got a bit more depth emotionally.

    My pick for remixers:

    Bruce Gilbert (!)

    Trent Reznor (since NIN was mentioned already! And he does a good job of keeping crucial bits intact.)

    Lee "Scratch" Perry - Seriously, think about it. Brilliant, no?

    Russell Haswell. Actually, scratch that. Haswell might not deliver unexpected results. For the same reason, I'd leave out Autechre as well. Now who would actually turn in a novel approach to the music? Hmmm.... maybe Mogwai would be good.

    For production I really think it'd be a good idea to have Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) co-producing/arguing with Eno. I believe that would constitute a meaningful balance and an undoubtedly inspiring environment for a new Wire project to incubate in.

    OR, and this would actually be far more feasible, get the on-line remix competition going (already mentioned) and really roll the dice. You have no idea what people who make music for free are liable to cook up!

    I love a bit of compression me, and like all music technology, its there to be used and abused.

    A remix competition would be great, if Wire would be good enough to put some stems up for download of a particular track I'd love to have a go. Plenty of software out there which everyone can have a go too...not just the musos! (or just have fun listening to a Wire track broken down into its parts).

    I agree! I'd love to do a mash up of Mekon and Agfers...same sort of groove to them...this would be interesting!

    great idea! maybe if we got a view of the raw tracks for a song or two, we could hear the sounds uncompressed.
