Editorial Reviews

UK remastered pressing. Wire's 3 Harvest released album's in the 70's are often referred to as a kind of accelerated development Triptych. The dfferences between the reductive minimalism of 1977's Pink Flag and the layered baroque (albeit still minimalistic) of 1979's 154 show a staggering turn over of ideas, yet each album remains iconic. 1978's Chairs Missing represented perhaps the biggest conceptual leap made during this period of Wire and was widey misunderstood at the time yet it remains, to the band and production crew Wire's favourite 70's album. If Pink Fag proposed an almost cut & paste approach to deconstructing rock history Chairs Missing proposed something more radical, a definite futurism with much less influence from it's antecedents. Chairs Missing was at once more stark and more lush than it's predecessor and has exerted it's own influence on the course of cultural history having laid down one of the earliest (if not the earliest) blueprints for the genuinely post-punk aesthetic. Emi. 2006
