Anyone heard of group called Wire

I've been looking everywhere and can't seem to find it. It's a long story but have any of you ever heard of a groups called Wire. They weren't around for very long, and it was way back probably 85 or 86. They had the same sound as The Alarm and U2 and I think they were scottish or something - they had a song called "The Bridge". They had a very heady sound. I have lost the album and am trying to recoup it but I can't find it anywhere.

Was anyone around back then who heard of em and can help me out?

Thx

Hi WhackaMole, love the name. I think Wire started out as a punk band, but I don't remember any of their stuff. You should check out Amazon, they'll probably have some of the albums. Or download WINMX or Audiogalaxy.

G'luck

A search on allmusic.com returns this: http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p...=B61u67uw0h0jj

Not sure if that's what you're looking for.

A music magazine I know released a list with the most important punk-albums, among them "Pink Flag" by Wire.

I think I remember, yeah back in my college days, I always thought they were Canadian for some reason. They may have played our Spring Weekend.

yep. Wire is one of those bands that all the critics know about, but hardly anyone else does. "seminal" is the word they like to use for bands like this, and big star, black flag, etc.
