At a time when back catalogue outsells fresh creativity and newcomers achieve fame by adding a lick of paint to their parents' record collections, it's unusual to find a band who, despite plying their trade for decades, are willing and able to make new work that's as vital and relevant as their own illustrious past recordings. Wire are such a band, and with 'Red Barked Tree' they have succeeded in making a statement that will sound as strong in 30 years as their celebrated historical oeuvre does today. 'Red Barked Tree' rekindles a lyricism sometimes absent from Wire's previous work and reconnects with the live energy of performance, harnessed and channelled from extensive touring over the past few years.'Red Barked Tree' was conceived, written and recorded mostly during 2010 by the pared-down lineup of Colin Newman, Graham Lewis and Robert Grey -- with no guests. Ranging from the hymnal 'Adapt' to the barking sledgehammer art-punk of 'Two Minutes', the album encompasses the full range of style and nuance that has always endeared Wire to pastel-tinged pop aficionados and bleeding-edge avant-rockers alike

Like lots of other underground bands, it's puzzling why Wire didn't score some huge hits, but post punkers know how great they still are, and thanks to a loyal fan base, they're allowed to continue.

This has to be one of the albums of the year, but doubt that it will appear on any awards list. Doesn't mean you can't award yourself a real treat. Put it in the car CD player and risk a speeding ticket, it gives you that kind of adrenalin rush.
If you have any doubt about this, buy the album, it won't break the bank, if you don't like it, sell it on. I doubt I will see many pre-owned copies up for sale.
