Wax Cannon - Waiting Watching Wire - Strange.|
Something about the two songs -- the hard-panned distorted guitars, the buried vocal, the fact that they're in the same key -- they just struck me as going together well. I'm sure Jay and Dave (of Wax Cannon) are both Wire fans from way back as well. Though I go back farther; I swiped the promo copy of "Pink Flag" from KCOE-FM in 1978....
"Strange" is, of course, the Wire song REM covered on "Document #5" back in the days before REM totally sucked.
Listen to them in sequence.
