Wire – Send Ultimate

Posted in Rock, Wire on 18/10/2010 by redo

Send Ultimate is an archaeology of Wire in the studio
between 2000 and 2003a period during which the band
worked on new music for the first time in a
decade. This retooled edition of Send gives fresh
insight into an exciting chapter for Wire, expanding the frame
around the album and providing a larger context with rare and previously unheard material. The double-CD includes
both sides of the 12 Times U vinylonly collectors
item (the 12XU remixes that catalyzed Wires Send-era burst of creativity); unreleased curiosities such as DJ Fuckoff, an exercise in hyperkinetic dancefloor lunacy; alternate versions of numbers originating in this period that subsequently appeared on 2007s Read & Burn 03; and the tracks from the first two
(out-of-print) Read & Burn EPs that were omitted from the original Send.
