Wire announces “Legal Bootleg” series

Over the years many Wire concerts have been recorded, circulated and traded by fans. With that in mind, Pinkflag has announced The Wire Legal Bootleg series curated by long-time Wire fan Mark Bursa. The series aims to make available the very best Wire gigs for an affordable price. The series is available by subscription here.

It is also possible to buy the albums ‘batches’ of three (the first of which is now on sale) or as individual gigs, though the series subscription exclusively contains a DVD of Wire’s second gig of the 1980s, 21 Jul 1985 Bloomsbury Theatre (pfb 802).

The first three releases are:
