"The band is
Wire, from the U.K., begun in 1977 or so with the punk
movement, but quickly turned towards more abstruse lyrics
and sound, sometimes stream of
thoughts like a Venn diagram where the only place all of the lyrics intersect is the actual topic, which is avoided. Seriously poetic, The song is “Drill”, from the CD: A Bell Is a Cup
(Until It Is Struck). The version on this CD was recorded live in Chicago, June 20th, 1987, at Cabaret Metro, with yours truly in attendance.
here is the link
to Susanne Somers in a dress to die for, introducing Wire.
They gave her a bit of a hard time after the song, but she
evidently did not take the
time to chat
with the band beforehand. Besides, the answers Bruce Gilbert gave were pretty funny for low key answers if you took the time to consider them - Suzanne evidently wanted ‘kooky’-ish answers, the antithesis of the music. Still, one awesome dress!"
