Synopsis

Album Description
UK remastered pressing. Usually contextualised against a backdrop of 2 years of the growing cultural importance ok - Wire's debut Pink Fag''' released in December 1977 on EMI's progressive labelHarvest was in fact was something other. To the keen cultural commentator the timing and label of it's release will register two essenLTal facts about it. Firstly, too late (a year after the pistol's debut release) to be part of UK punk's first flush and secondly that the band were signaHing something beyond punk by their choice of label. Further investigation would reveal 21 tracks, some of them clocking in at well under a minute and covering a range of tempii wel beyond the _ buzzsaw rockabilly that had become, even by the 2nd half of 1977, punk's staple. 2006

(5 out of 5 stars)

"As usual the japanese pressing is far superior in sound to the domestic version of same.This is a milestone "progressive-punk" album that does not let up from start to finish.Wire's distinct british sound coupled with pristine recording is a real treat.Highly recommended."
