Wire - 17 Dec 1985 Paradiso, Amsterdam
Wire's "year zero" re-start in the 80's was not met with universal acclaim. Far from it. Until subsequent albums established a set of material audiences were not quite sure what to make of a Wire stripped of all familiarity. In fact the band received some hostile receptions, none more so than at the Paradiso. A show to a packed auditorium where many felt short changed by the lack of familiar material and the set's presumed brevity. In fact the urban myth that the band played less than half an hour is rendered untrue by this release which clocks in at a little over 46 minutes. Short by Springsteen standards but pretty standard even for late 70's Wire...
