Though Wire tried damn hard with Red Barked Tree.
That is a very goog album indeed. I was pretty surprised when it came out as I had lost track of the band ages ago and didn't even know they still do albums. And such good albums as this. Still kicking, though on a less aggressive formula than in the early years, still full of atmosphere and tension.
The Gang Of Four's new album was a similar surprise to me. Another gang of old still making good music.
And talking Post-Punk and New Wave, the Human League have a new album out as well. It's less nostalgic and thus better than I expected, but still too mellow for my liking. But than they always were.
