The Wire Tapper 12, free with the current issue
Finally got my hands on a copy of the 250th issue of the Wire, with free double CD attached. I've only got to grips with CD1 today, but I was initially impressed by old faves like the Fall and Bark Psychosis, and a seemingly new band called Githead. They sound a bit like Wire, and further investigation shows that Colin Newman is involved. Impressive tracks by bands which are new to me include the hip hop of Aesop Rock, electronica from Pita (Peter Rehberg I believe), jazz from the Necks (shame I missed them in belfast last week) and great ambient stuff from Chas Smith. I haven't even got round to CD2 yet.
