    Default WIRE or the only band that matters the whole fucking weekend

    every other band on the lineup pales in comparison to what this band did on their first 3 records. i hope you go deaf if you think different

    Too bad you'll be lucky if they play so much as one song from any of those records during their entire tour.

    lookin at the bands you are excited to see in your sig, I think you might not be too fond of Wire. I'm not taking a slam at your taste. But it is different than wire.

    both Wire & The Fall have been ripped off by many past bands that have played Coachella. Great to finally see one of them on the lineup.

    I love Wire, but they were pretty average when I saw them last week.

    It was the same thing when I saw them in 2008. I'd probably be a lot more excited if I didn't already know what to go in expecting.

    I like Wire best from about 1985 to 1990 era, after the Pink Flag period. The "Eardrum Buzz" video features Steve Martin in a cameo.

    You are not the only one. I hope a lot of younger attendees will discover Wire. I reckon most of their fan base is over age thirty.

    I'm really excited about this set. Wish they were billed higher, but what can you do.

    Anyone remember when the drummer of WIRE left the band and they changed their name (briefly) to WIR?

    yes I remember that and also when Graham Lewis did his solo project "He Said"

    I also enjoy those B.C. Gilbert records "DOME 1,2,3" + his The The involvement

    basically Newman, Lewis & Gilbert are full of awesomeness!!

    You just reminded me of how it sucks that The The has never played Coachella. As for WIRE (not Wire), can someone put on the video with WIRE and Steve Martin?

    I would really love to see them... Pink Flag is especially *amazing* (a lot of these songs are my all-time most played in iTunes, and that's.. definitely saying something, haha. Also a lot of the songs are short so you can just listen to them over and over and over...) This will give me an excuse to delve further into their newer stuff...
    Coachella 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011!!!, 2012 (w1), 2013 (w2), 2014! (w2)...

    They don't suck live by any means. Just make sure you're familiar with their new album.
