[tweetmeme]U.K. post-punk warriors Wire (http://www.pinkflag.com/) stopped by the Seattle studios of KEXP (http://kexp.org/) radio in early April during a short West Coast swing in support of their 15th studio album, Silver/Lead (https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dpopular&field-keywords=wire+silver+lead), to perform a four-song on-air session and chat with host Stevie Zoom.
The band played three songs off its new album — “Diamonds in Cups,” “Playing Harp for the Fishes” and “Short Elevated Period” — plus “The Art of Assistance,” which Colin Newman described as being “fairly obscure within Wire’s catalog, having never been released on a proper album.”
Wire returns to the U.S. this September during its 13-date North American tour (http://www.slicingupeyeballs.com/2017/05/17/wire-north-american-tour-2017/).
Watch the full KEXP session below.


Setlist: Wire, KEXP studios, Seattle, WA, 4/6/17
1. “Diamonds In Cups”
