A brand new year, a brand new Wire. If only everything in life could be so dependably... good.
The new issue features interviews with American performer, composer, filmmaker and choreographer, Meredith Monk and folk singer and activist (and nonagenarian) Barbara Dane. There's an Invisible Jukebox featuring electronic music producer Aya, a soundcheck featuring new releases by Ryuichi Sakamoto and Ishmael Reed, a review of DeForrest Brown's brilliant 'Assembling a Black Counter-Culture', and a catch up with Leeds' own Territorial Gobbing.
Wire has brought us monthly adventures in sound and music since 1982. Erudite, thoughtful, and always playing in the margins.
