Seminal punk band Wire have confirmed they'll be re-issuing their classic live album Document and Eyewitness this August.

Rough Trade boss Geoff Travis (who originally released the vinyl version back in 1981) commented that they were "completely mad" to reissue it. Seems a bit harsh to us. Document and Eyewitness features material from their Electric Ballroom show in 1980, plus recordings from a July 1979 show at the Notre Dame Hall and 'Heartbeat' from a March 1979 gig in Montreux.

Document and Eyewitness's reissue is out on August 18th via Pink Flag as a Double-CD and Double-LP; stream '12XU (Fragment)' below.
