Wire - Document And Eyewitness (1979-1980)

"Wire are set to reissue their 1981 live album Document And Witness on August 18 via the band's Pink Flag label. The record, which marked the end of the band's first period, famously took a notorious 1980 concert at London's Electric Ballroom, which saw the band going in for some Dadaist onstage experimentation in front of a hostile audience, as its main source material. ... Now, all three of those gig recordings will be released as individual albums as part of Pink Flag's 'Legal Bootleg' series, alongside an expanded version of Document And Witness, which includes singles, B-sides and previously unheard rehearsal recordings on double CD and vinyl."
