Wire magazine online

14 December 2005

Found this fantastic set of web exclusive songs, videos and all sorts of things wonderful on The Wire magazine's site.

 Hear excerpts from tracks by artists featured in the magazine such as Lightning Bolt and Loren Mazzacane Connors & Alan Licht and excerpts from the magazine's 60 most radical cover versions.

Also look at videos of Kim Gordon and Jenny Hoyston (Erase Errata) at the Her Noise festival here

The best thing on the site however is an archive of all The Wire's radio shows on Resonance 104.4FM.  Any person looking to gain an insight into the more leftfield and avant-garde side of music could do alot worse than listen to these shows
