MOSH BETWEEN THE PINK FLAGS
A couple of mates and I are off to see Britain's acclaimed, edgy and demanding post-punk outfit Wire tonight at Oxford Art Factory, Sydney. Colin Newman's solo stuff and work with Wire during the late 80s inspired me. Wire are known for playing unique gigs where previously unreleased material and re-workings of vintage tracks clash. Let's hope the Pink Flag Orchestra (many, many guitarists at once) turns up. LJ, February 20 2014.
