Re: (TV) Re: wire
This list is great! It has reminded me of a lot of my
old faves (Pixies, Pere Ubu, and now Wire and PIL).
Flowers of Romance was my first PIL album. I also
liked This is What you Want. I completely forgot
about Commercial Zone but I am positive I bought it
and it was ultra cool. Crap, now I am going to go to
my storage room and hunt down all of these.
