Wire's first three albums (Pink Flag, Chairs Missing and 154) need no introduction. They are the classic records on which the punk-era futurist's reputation is based. Moreover, they are the recordings that minted the post-punk form that was adopted by numerous other bands, but Wire was there first. It has been a number of years since these albums were readily available. The aim with these new vinyl reissues is to approximate the original statements as closely as possible, but with remastered audio. These definitive vinyl versions have the same covers and inners as the originals (minus the Harvest logo). 

Wire's debut Pink Flag, was originally issued in December 1977 on EMI's progressive label Harvest, perhaps an unlikely home for a release that effectively prefigured both post-punk and art-punk. In Pink Flag Wire proposed a form of expression which drew on formal structures taken from historic styles of rock and pop (including punk) but somehow subverted those structures by maintaining a sense of controlled distance from the form. A kind of modernist deconstructed rock made in what seemed at the time to be an almost mechanically precise way. The album has been influential on U.S. hardcore, Britpop and 21st century art and post punk. Tracks from it (especially "3 Girl Rumba") remain amongst Wire's most popular songs.
