Listening to the He Said Omala album right now. Not counting the Dome records, it's probably my favourite Wire-related solo album. Graham Lewis' collaborations in the 1990s interregnum were generally exceptional.
I have the Take Care album by He Said, but I think I like this better.
I'm not especially keen on either He Said (or HALO, which is also just GL) but the He Said Omala and Hox albums are superb. Yet, from Dome to the present, GL's best work has been done outside Wire.

Yeah out of all of them, I think Hox is still my favorite. His daughter's work is quite good too, I remember you posted that a while ago and it stayed in my rotation for quite a while, actually.
WWK: I feel confident we haven't heard the last from Dr. Harvey Camel.

Have you heard the album pre>He? Can share if you're interested.

It lacks a comparison to Sam Cooke and Marlene Dietrich.

The last Wire song that I'd feel good with putting on a comp. Perhaps no coincidence that it's a Lewis vocal.

A rather un-Wire-like poster. Nothing about that poster is suggestive of the music you're going to hear.

The Send Ultimate set makes this fairly obsolete, no?

Depends on your attitude towards edits. I listen every so often to the Redux set I bought via iTunes. It's no great revelation or anything, but the edits don't ruin things either. I might still get this to support the band and/or for the book it comes with. I'm undecided, tho.
