It looks like I won’t be posting any new music until tomorrow, but to tide you over I thought I’d share this. A couple days ago I was tipped off to a vintage Wire Train live show that recently surfaced. It’s from 1982 San Fran gig, and if it’s not one of the earliest Wire Train performances, it’s the first WT show ever. A few notes:
Its a soundboard tape, and its good quality; 8 tracks, 4 you’ll recognise and 4 where I’ve guessed the titles. This is *possibly* their first ever live show – after the 3rd track Kevin says “This is the first time we’ve played in front of people, if you could clap that’d make us happy”. The songs aren’t as polished as they became by 1983/84.
Track list and FLAC/MP3 links are as follows. Just FYI I’m not hosting the files, but the links should work indefinitely.
01. We Could Call It
02. Over and Over
03. Return to Me
04. I Gotta Go
05. In a Plane
07. Everything Is Turning Up Down Again
08. Chamber of Hellos
