Wire's 3Here's the one where it all goes crazy – where Wire move beyond the short, sharp shock of their earliest material – and almost lay the blueprint for the whole post-punk generation in the process! The ideas and sounds are every bit as sharp as before, but they're mixed with a moody sense of soundscape and experimental currents – definitely the unusual sounds that the Gilbert and Lewis team were keen to explore! Imagine Brian Eno making a punk record at the end of the 70s, and you'll have a good idea of the vibe going on here – but that's just the beginning, as there's so much more going on – including moments of hope and tunefulness that come as a real surprise, and which keep the album so wonderfully strong over the decades. Titles include "Once Is Enough", "Two People In A Room", "Single KO", "40 Versions", "I Should Have Known Better", "On Returning", "The 15th", and "Map Ref 41N 93W". CD features 5 great bonus tracks – mostly pretty odd ones, like "Small Electronic Piece", "Song I", "Get Down (parts 1 & 2)", and "Let's Panic Later". (Out of print.) © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.
If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
