Since their formation in London in 1976, the four members of Wire have maintained and advanced a musical project which treats the creative potential of a rock band as a fluid, amorphous medium.  Originally associated with the punk rock scene, the band were later central to the development of post-punk.

With a solid reputation for experimenting with song arrangements throughout their career, Wire have always employed a unique, endlessly restless and risk-taking creativity to question every aspect of songwriting, recording and performance.

In terms of working together as Wire, the group’s members disbanded in 1980, reformed in 1985, disbanded in 1992 and reformed for the second time in 2003. Such sabbaticals from their career as Wire have served to sharpen the group’s edge and focus, updating the tactics with which they pursue this shared project.
