Editorial Reviews

1980... WIRE play their final gig for five years. Ten days later BRUCE GILBERT and GRAHAM LEWIS enter Blackwing Studio and begin a two and a half year obsession... a new mode... a new start... DOME... a name to conjure with... an umbrella to play out their occasional eccentric excesses... only a CUPOL of times do they dare venture out into live performance.Here we go... DOME 1... an album of pre-recorded fragments and ideas compiled over three days... DOME "changed the menu", moving a complete one hundred and eighty degrees away from the WIRE experience... DOME 1 set the agenda. It was clear that we were not going to be subjected to the run of the mill. We either went the distance or were left as innocent bystanders feeling the strain. And then... August 1980... a different kettle of fish... DOME 2... DOME take Blackwing Studio apart and re-invent a new recording process... anything is game for an instrument... a tale to tell... stories abound of (red) tents being erected, recording in the dark... DOME 2... a soundtrack for a "long lost life". DOME moved onwards and upwards creating a frozen, crystal landscape, the fire kept out... the desolate "Keep It", the ritualistic "Twist Up"... DOME gave up the realm of verse/chorus songwriting to concentrate on and develop their own craft within the studio environment, pushing themselves (and the listener) to newer territories of textures, rhythms, noises, etc... no-one could say that they were easy listening but their sound is seductive, penetrating, and above all lasting.

Being a diehard Wire fan, particularly a fan of Wire's more esoteric material, I thoroughly appreciate Dome's material, this album in particular. This album, actually a combination of two albums, is almost beyond believe in its brilliance and creativity. It's uniqueness will astonish you; truly, there's nothing else quite like it.

While all of the material on this album will please (no exaggeration), some tunes stand out more than others: "Cruel when Complete," featuring A. C. Marias in monotone, is an especially pleasing work. "And Then," "Here we Go," "Rolling Upon my Day," "Madmen," "The Red Tent 1 & 2," "Long Lost Life," and "Breathsteps" are all well worth a few listens (or 1,000 listens). The material on this album is quite variable, not at all repetitious; each title is unique in its sound. Much of this material is quite unsettling (particularly "Madmen," "The Red Tent 2," and "Long Lost Life"), but that's just part of its beauty. This is powerful, highly intelligent, emotion-evoking stuff.

If you're an fan of Wire or of experimental or industrial music, I'd highly recommend purchasing this album; it's certainly worth the money.

This album (well, 2) are completely lacking of the substance that made Wire popular. In Wire's first few albums they brushed against the avant-garde on a number of occasions (especially during their live performances). While Newman and Gotobed went on making A-Z, technically Colin's solo debut, Gilbert and Lewis were heavily at work in 1980 making these two albums (Dome 1 are tracks 1-10, 2 are 11-17). I had gotten A-Z first, thinking that was strange, but this really shows their (Wire bandmates) at the peak of their creativity, using tapes, noise, instrument feedback, voice-overs, and whatever these two fellows could get their hands on.

It's hard for me to describe it, but altogether you hear ambience, noise, choiresque vocals, spoken word, mild electronica, and some very unique guitar work. It'll also make you feel like you're being held in a dungeon, and this is the soundtrack to your being tortured. I used to think Lewis and Newman were the two powerhouses of creativity behind Wire, but Gibert's contributions become much clearer in Dome (take Wire's new album for instance, very lacking artistically without him).

For Pink Flag fans, stay away from this because it'll only disturb your fickle, punk-loving minds; for actual Wire fans (and I mean that literally, as Pink Flag is Wire's only punk album), this is a don't-miss item, artistically and historically.

Dome I is so brilliant in its set up. Very spheric and with the help of the esoteric voice of AC Marias. Dome II is very strong on the heavy sounds and gets industrial grooves grinding along. For me, these albums are on vinyl. But for anyone else: you can't go wrong with this album if you like the experiments within Wire and the adventures of 2 great artists in ambient/industrial/experimental soundscapes. I will get this one too as cd. That will be the third time I will buy Dome I, as one got lost at the time. I will buy it a fourth time in the future if somethingh bad happens to the other two albums I will have after ordering this cd.
