Sunday Mirra #5, 1978

Mirra: Right. Uh, can you read music?

Graham: No, none of us can, if any of us has an idea, then we go 'di-dum-der-dir-dum etc'....till we can all play it, then we add bits on to it.

Right, so now we know...that's how Wire wrought that magical sound...... anyway, there's a nice 4 page encounter with the band in this fine issue of Sunday Mirra. Elsewhere there's Dose, Moped Mania, The Killjoys, Toots & The Maytals, 999 + 'Another Mirra Exclusive' with un-aired excerpts from Stuart Henry's, Sex Pistols interview. 'The Hayes Wave' featuring Dose, Tubeway Army, Transistor, and The Zo. Reviews: ATV, Jools Holland, Buzzcocks, Dirty Dog, The Adverts, Gen X, and The Patti Smith Band.

Nice one Chris - yep, I agree, 'crappy material'?? Wtf! - still there's no accounting for taste - or lack of it ;)

Be sure to get in early doors for the next comp.

All the best
