Stereo Sanctity Announce Wire Re-release

  • Published in News

Stereo Sanctity have announced the addition of seminal punks, Wire, to their roster along with the reissue of the bands 1981 Document and Eyewitness via Pink Flag. When informed that Wire were planning to reissue Document and Eyewitness, Rough Trade boss Geoff Travis (who released the original vinyl version) commented that the band were “completely mad.”
 
For those unfamiliar with Document and Eyewitness, it's not just an album of live recordings from three turn-of-the-80s Wire gigs. What makes it more than that is the unorthodox nature of the main performance and the way it was presented on record.

For the album, the Electric Ballroom material was supplemented with recordings from a July 1979 show at the Notre Dame Hall (a straightforward band performance), along with one track ("Heartbeat") from a March 1979 gig in Montreux, during Wire’s stint as the support act on Roxy Music’s Manifesto tour.

This release-cycle provides a wider view of the period, bringing in as much additional material as can be accommodated within the confines of the media. It takes as its core the Electric Ballroom, Notre Dame Hall and Montreux shows (remastered from the original tapes and pitch-corrected where necessary) and adds further texture with studio and rehearsal room recordings.

The release will hit the stores on Monday August 18. It comes as double vinyl in a gatefold sleeve, a double album (CD and digital) and three additions to the Legal Bootleg series. You can listen to '12XU (FRAGMENT)' now via Soundcloud
