Purchased (Not Only) Because Of The Cover

Wire: Pink Flag (Special-Edition + Buch) (2 CDs) – jpc

Punk was always radical but less bands were more radical on their first album than Wire. They released their debut in 1977 when almost everything changed in music. The cover of the album is also radical showing just a Pink Flag and the name of the band. 21 songs in 35 minutes and some of them less than one minute is almost impossible to beat. Their songs has everything that turned my musical taste into a new direction: they were fast but also melodic, full of harmony but dark and always with a massive guitar sound. A true milestone that is still surpassing.

Top 10 all time. Minor chords have a place in punk.
