    Ok completely off Wire topic (possibly) but let's all see what we're all playing as we type our entry.
    I'll start off and put the cat among the pigeons:
    Dhafer Youssef - Birds Requiem .....utterly awesome
  2.  
    John Bender's "I Don't Remember Now", electro from the 1980s. Very non-Wire.
  3.  
    Nils Frahm - Spaces.

    I'm listening to 'Under My Skin I am Laughing' by Earwig which I've just started listening to again after almost 20 years. Anyone remember them? Early 90s kind of post-rock/dream pop (touch of AR Kane/Cocteaus about it) but very stripped down gossamer thin, fragile music with female vocals but kind of unsettling - described in the NME (or possibly MM) as 'music that could turn a room cold' IIRC

    Still stands up!, and is basically the same formula The XX did very well with of a couple of years ago...they were a bit ahead of their time.

    Russell Haswell 5" Vinyl Series LP

    great rubbery mono noise

    there's extra fluff left on the needle after playing - must be the fuzz distortion

    Well I gave up my turntable years ago, and the only vinyl records I own are Wire singles framed on my wall. But I was spinning something so hopefully that counts. Satoko Fujii Quartet - Angelona (Natsuki Tamura, Satoko Fujii, Takeharu Hayakawa, Tatsuya Yoshida)
  8.  
    To qualify. When I said turntable I also mean CD deck :D

    Currently playing: Can - Edinburgh Festival 1973 (Damo's last gig) bootleg but still brill!
  9.  
    Diluvial - Bruce Gilbert + BAW
  10.  
    Tonights noise of choice is...
    Can - Monster Movie. 45 years old and a stunner
  11.  
    Tim Hecker on continuous play in the car.
    Can never get enough of 'Future Days', (the track), so I might give that a spin tonight - listen on the headphones (nearly said 'cans') whilst wife watches TV. You get some interesting collisions of images / sounds / lyrics that way.
  12.  
    Larry Young - Lawrence of Newark Dredging up images of Saturn with James Blood Ulmer and Pharaoh Sanders.
  13.  
    Whoa! The Lawrence of Newark is another stunner. One I will dig out and play tonight methinks!
  14.  
    happy mondays - calpa your hands (i'm being honest here, jsut dragged a few old singles down for a spin)
  15.  
    that should've said "clap"
  16.  
    Yuji Imamura - Air (Three Blind Mice Japan) w/Yasuo Shimura, Renkichi Hayashi, Nobuyoshi Ino, and Hiroshi Murakami. If you like early electric period Miles Davis.
  17.  
    Lawrence of Newark played. Better each time and just plopped Can - Soundtracks into the player. Bracing myself for the perfect Mother Sky
    I like the sound of Yuji Imamura. Will investigate :D
