Close to the Wire

Jonder's third volume of Wire covers returns to the Japanese tribute album Post Flag (tracks 11-16).   I also got some songs from Soundcloud, (#22), and sugarmegs (#25). 

I love the way "Fragile Mystery" interpolates the Wipers' song "Mystery"!   The band Meat Wave recently covered "Mystery" too.
Los Sedantes have a lovely album that is free on Bandcamp, with covers of Joy Division's "Heart And Soul", Neil Young's "Harvest Moon" and "Bela Lugosi's Dead":

I edited out the "Bobby Moore Is Innocent" half of the Serious Drinking track.  Once again, you can find "Real Cool Time: Feelies Covers, 1977-2011" at

  2. I followed Wire's career ever since Chairs Missing and I luv em' to bits.
    I didn't think there was a need for Wire covers but some of these are actually really good.
    Thank you for the work you put into this post and this blog in general.

  3. I see you had posted some Bif Naked back in 2011.Could you repost those again?Thanks.

    The first three Wire albums are pretty special.
