What we said:
Gone are the days when turning 50 meant succumbing to the lure of dad-rock, comfortable slippers and a quiet life in the suburbs. In fact, the opposite seems to be the case for our post-punks, whom we’re taking great delight in listening to grow old disgracefully. With the irrepressible Mark E Smith leading the vanguard, still hitting career highs, and Gang of Four readying album number seven, it’s now Wire’s turn to return to the frontline. Offering up the profanity-heavy sneer of ‘Two Minutes’, the heavy distortion of ‘Moreover’, and the more relaxed, new-wave-ish ‘Clay’, Red Barked Tree is the sound of veterans on top form. And when you sound this relevant and vital when you’re pushing 60, it only goes to show there’s no substitute for experience.
