Musical Interlude: Wire

From the "it's nice to be reminded" department, here's one of Wire's videos from the late 1980s:



H/t BLCKDGRD. Easily, "Kidney Bingos" serves as simultaneously both Wire's catchiest and weirdest song. It's one of those tunes that's hard not to sing along to, but those lyrics - the chorus goes: "money spine/paper lung/kidney bingos/organ fun" and yet the song itself almost has the feel of a love song. Then again, that was always part of the charm of Wire: the listener never quite knew what to expect from album to album, which was why they were one of my favorite bands back in the day.
