Photobucket Photobucket Wire – Komedia // 1st February 2011 Touring on the end of the release of Red Barked Tree, their tenth studio album, veteran post-punk legends Wire play Brighton’s Komedia. Attributed with pretty much creating the experimental punk sound and influencing countless bands who have gone on to influence countless others, Wire’s sound is as relevant now as it ever has been, and Brighton folk would be foolhardy to miss out.
