I woke up with Bad Night in my head this morning but I haven't listened to Commercial Zone in ages. WTF?
And have you felt compelled to listen to now?

It does have a nagging feel to it.

My proudest accomplishment in life is cajoling Inder into loving Wire. Which shows how pathetic my life is.

This is my all-time favorite Wire solo track. It always reminds me of Christmas, which is around the time I first heard it back in 86.

That and It Seems, in retrospect, were the beginnings of CN becoming an electronic artist (mainly as Immersion, with his wife). He gets tagged as the conventional one because of Gilbert and Lewis, but he's got just as solid a track record for strange and minimalist work.

He had to try something different as Wire were a terrible punk band.

That sounds like something Rod Stewart would call an album.

I think I should bow down to your superior knowledge of all things Rod.

Don't forget the only band bigger than Rod were The Rutles.

CN has that McCartneyesque natural gift for melody so even when he gets really weird it's usually pretty songful, if not tuneful. Gilbert and Lewis are texture guys. Lewis can write some very good tunes but you never get the feeling it's his primary focus.

I agree, but will add that, weirdly enough, Lewis is the one who had pop star ambitions during the 80s and 90s.

Yes, it's been killing me all day but I've been busy making this wireframe and haven't thought to put my headphones on.
Inder:
Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Table salt (spoon hinge)
Octopus (Ukraine)
St. Petersburg (arms)
Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)
Lamp post (self evident)
Florida Timeshare (ditto)
Heraclitus (EMI)
Developers (Developers Developers)

As evidenced by his rad rat-tail at the time.

Equalled only by Colin's early-90s ponytail, where he looked like a sleazy A & R man.
